Suppose the Ugandan government does the same - we'll be happy to be in
Mauritius. I think your argument is not relevant - too unlikely, and if
something happens, AfriNIC can move - we all know that.

forget Mauritian law (but i suggest AfriNIC employees should comply with
it)   ;-)

I gave other good reasons:
introducing electronic voting gave more options and rights to resource
members. Good.
removing proxies would take options and rights away from resource
members. Bad. (and not possible for legal reasons)

I would even say that the latter makes AfriNIC procedures less democratic.

Any thoughts about this?

Have a nice weekend!
