Douglas Onyango commented about the election procedures.  The 
eligibility requirements for an AfriNIC Board of Director or for a 
PDWG Chair do not bar a candidate from taking both positions.  The 
rules published by the Nominations and Elections Committee do not bar 
the candidate either.  This is an unusual case.

The clarification from Ashok only says that: "good governance warrant 
that a Director may not be the chair of the PDWG".  That is why I 
asked for a clarification by asking the following question:

   "If I am part of the Board of Directors, for example, can I be elected
    as Chair of the PDWG?"

I would be grateful if Ashok could clarify that.
