Hello Mwendwa,


Since the vote did not reach quorum, the result does not stand. 


Regarding how to handle the inactive ALSes, that would be a matter for AFRALO to decide according to your RoP – for questions on this issue, please consult with Silvia Vivanco, who has been coordinating RALO affairs along side with RALO leaders. 


Thank you,

Thank you Staff for a job well done. 


I have a few questions


1. If the vote does not reach quorum, what is the interpretation? Does the result stand, or it is annulled?

2. Because we have many ALS which are either dormant or inactive (for lack of a better word), if their dormancy affect such important decisions like the vote that went out, is it time to consider what to do with the dormant ALSes? Would one such approach be tor purge them?

Dear All, 


Kindly note that the vote for the AFRALO decision on EURALO's petition for the ICANN Board Director selection is now closed. 




Should AFRALO support EURALO's petition for Sébastien Bachollet to be added to the Final Slate of Candidates for the ICANN Board Director selected by the At-Large Community?
