There is no shoving here.

The ICANN Board, when approving the guidebook, opened the door for the
involvement of "public authorities associated with the continent or
the region".

If you see the matter as I do, that ICANN has asked that governmental
and/or intergovernmental entities weigh in on new gTLDs that have a
geographic scope, it is perfectly reasonable to have the AU involved.

in light of the above I see zero abuse of trust, bad influencing, lies
or manipulations coming from any of your opponents.
