The whole discussion was about how we handle the issues. Large consultation and consensus is key. Adoption of the amendments  by “members” votes shall be administrative and legal formalities.

OK. Let now look at the 75% majority also called Super Majority.  75% of what ?  The Registered members ?  The total membership ?

BTW: In my mail(*)posted on the 29th June, i suggested that we also improved things here. These points  seem to not have been (or yet) considered.

4-  Amend 12.10 (ii)   to set the quorum at 10% of the total membership either present physically or remotely 

5- Amend 12.11 to set  minimum number of votes. For all vote, a minimum of votes from 10% of the total eligible voters required.

Hope this helps
