The is a description of the responsibilities of 
the Chairs at 
It does not list any of the above.  There is a 
video about the last selection of a Chair at  The 
video shows the Chair of Afrinic Ltd refreshing 
the memory of one of the candidates.

If the persons voting for or against a candidate 
believe that one or more of the points which are 
listed above are required, I assume that they 
would use that for their decision.

Ernest commented that according to the PDP the 
voting is done by a show of hands.  The election 
of the Chair used to be done by secret 
ballot.  In cases where there were last minute 
problems, the selection was done through a 
mechanism proposed by the Chair of Afrinic 
Ltd.  As those are recurring problems, I suggest 
documenting how the election/selection is supposed to be done.
