[AFRI-Discuss] AFRALO comments on the Transition of the Stewardship of the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) functions

Dear All,


I would suggest the following if members agree to it as I have not been following  the discussions earlier:


1.       Either Post-Transition IANA (PTI), being an affiliate or subsidiary of ICANN; and having a contract between PTI and ICANN would put both the PTI and ICANN in an incestuous situation.

The best scenario would have been the PTI being an independent multistakeholder entity and thus discharging the contractual obligations under a contract with ICANN

2.       The Customer Standing Committee (CSC) should consist of the members of the multi-stakeholder community. Though it would have been advisable that the CSC be independent from both the PTI and ICANN, however if the CSC is under the ICANN structure can suit the purpose as the contract would be given by ICANN to the PTI.

3.       Since we are proposing the PTI, as an independent body, having a contract with ICANN, it makes sense that the  IANA function review team (IFRT) comes within the structure of ICANN. 


Best regards


Dave Kissoondoyal

Dear Fatimata,


Thank you for your comment.


This statement is an AFRALO one and not a portion of ALAC statement. It is our interest to make comments at several levels (individual, as African RALO, as ALAC). 

And thank you for correcting the typo mistakes.

There will be soon another AFRALO statement, on ICANN accountability this time.

Hello Aziz and all,


I support this statement. Thanks Seun.  However, I made some edits and a comment in the attachment draft.

Dear AFRALO members,

During the AFRALO monthly meeting held Wednesday, May 13, it was decided that AFRALO contributes to public comments on the Transition of the Stewardship of the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) functions (https://www.icann.org/public-comments/cwg-stewardship-draft-proposal-2015-04-22-en).

I transmit you here attached for your comments the draft statement that Seun Ojedeji prepared. This Document would represent the opinion of AFRALO in response to public comments launched by the Cross-Community Working Group to Develop an IANA Stewardship Transition Proposal on Naming Related Functions (CWG), which will be closed on May 20, 2015.

To include your comments in the final version on time, you are kindly requested to send them before May 17 at 18:00 UTC. The statement will be updated, based on your comments and will be sent before May 20 at 23:59 UTC.
