Yes, governmental folks sit in the GAC, but it is NOT a "public authority".

The answer to your query to Dr. Nii is still the same:

"An applied-for gTLD string that falls into any of 1 through 4 listed
above is considered to represent a geographic name. In the event of
any doubt, it is in the applicant’s interest to consult with relevant
governments and public authorities and enlist their support or
non-objection prior to submission of the application, in order to
preclude possible objections and pre-address any ambiguities
concerning the string and applicable requirements."


"A name indicates what we seek. An address indicates where it is. A
route indicates how we get there."  Jon Postel
