Trust me. The AfriNIC Nomcom/Election Board is so powerful, the above statement is completely misplaced. 
They new team needs both your Sympathies and Prayers. AfriNIC is indeed approaching its early teenage...hence the unpredictable behaviour.
Enough said and.... back into *hibernation*  :-)

Congratulations Chair and Vice chair.

I would like to share with members some facts.I've observed that both chairman and vice chairman'sterms expire at same time that is next AGM in June 2016 Though it may be unlikely that if none get reelected, common sense,good practice and Business Continuity would suggest different way where atleast one of the two is on seat during beyond June 2016.  This also means that the chairs will have oversight of their ownelection raising more accountability challenges. In the recent discussion abouthow previous chair and vice got swapped during AFRINIC 21 ( November 2014), one of thereasons cited was for smooth transition.It now appears that this has not been followed and openining a door to not  following established principles .

This might be a good reason to get the Governance Committee establishedto advise on such cases.

Kind Regards.

Dear AFRINIC members and community,

At a Board meeting on 22 July 2015, Sunday Folayan was elected as Chair,
and Haitham El-Nakhal was elected Vice-Chair.  They will serve for one
year terms.
