Such restrictions do not impact of the proxy holder they impact on the member and the members right to choose who they trust and who they wish to invest with the power to speak for and vote for them.

What right do we have to dictate such to the members? Why should a member not be free to choose who the trust, when they trust them, and what power they choose to entrust to whoever they choose.

Or are we saying we don't have enough faith in our members to make their own choices and we need to act as nannies? I call that an insult to the intelligence of our members.

Nothing to discuss. A proxy attends a general meeting in place of the
member and while in attendance has full right and power as if it was
the member present.

In fact this limitation of number of member representations a proxy
can have is plain silly. Every member should have a right to appoint a
proxy of their choice. If 1000 members end up appointing the same
individual to proxy so be it.
