I understand your point but I do believe that a candidate can receive support from anybody in the continent.
My understanding of the current election/voting process is that proxies are needed because of the physical presence requirement.
E-voting will allow members who cannot be present at the meeting to vote. E-voting will then solve the proxy issue and there will be
no need for proxies anymore.
In case AfriNIC choose to use the two voting systems (e-voting and physical) members present at the meeting will vote and those non present will use
e-voting. There will be no need for proxies in this case too.
