[NA-Discuss] In the case of a tie in the election of ALAC member...

The NARALO Operating Principles call for the NARALO Chair to cast a 
vote (a 2nd vote if he/she is a voting representative) in order to 
break a tie in a NARALO ALAC Member election 
section 13).

Since in this case the Chair is one of the candidates, that would not 
be appropriate. I have proposed that in the case of a tie, we use 
Section 19 of the Operating Procedures instead, the procedure 
designed to break a tie for the Chair or Secretariat. In essence this 
would mean the three NARALO ALAC Members break the tie.

Both candidates have agreed to this procedure.

Clearly we need a revision to fix the problem in the future, but that 
is not today's task.
