The last sentence in Section 2 was added at the request of the 
community.  My understanding is that it is to take effect at the 
beginning of the AfriNIC-13 meeting as the proposal has been ratified 
by the AfriNIC Board of Directors.

As there has already been comments about the election, I won't 
comment further about that.

The "As a special case" paragraph in Section 4 was added at the 
request of the community.  It explains that the terms are staggered 
so that a new co-chair is chosen every year.  If the option is to 
have interim chairs, does that paragraph still apply?

The last paragraph of Section 4 gets into the details of what to do 
if chairs are unavailable.
