I gather that you are referring to Section 4 of AFPUB-2010-GEN-005:
"The Policy Development Working Group has two Chairs to perform the
administrative functions of the group. The Working Group Chairs will
be chosen by the AfriNIC community during the Public Policy Meeting
and they will serve staggered two-year terms. The term ends during the
first Public Policy Meeting meeting corresponding to the end of the
term for which they were appointed. A term may begin or end no sooner
than the first day of the Public Policy Meeting and no later than the
last day of the Public Policy Meeting as determined by the mutual
agreement of the current Chair and the new Chair.
As a special case for the two Working Group Chairs appointed when this
policy first takes effect, one of the Chairs will be appointed for a
two-year term, and the other Chair will be appointed for a one-year term."
I assumed that the text was clear given the past discussions about
it. McTim's term was for one year based on the second paragraph. It
is a one-off case which is no longer applicable. After the last
round of elections, the first paragraph takes effects for the terms
of the Chairs.
