As a general rule, the only check and balance on a board is the voting members who can
choose to change out the board and the board itself who can (usually) remove a member
if it is necessary.

The method for measuring the effectiveness of the board is generally up to each voter
to determine for his/her self and I don’t see any reason this should be different for AfriNIC.

I think the members of AfriNIC are perfectly capable of electing the board and that
there is no reason we should dictate to them what criteria they should consider when
making their votes.
