+1 Alain, 

I would like appeal PDP chair and co-chair, in respect to majority of the community opinion, to stop wasting time and ressources to this unusual proposal. 
AFRINIC has to Promote responsible management of internet resources through the african region, as well as, the responsible development and operation of internet infrastructure .... provide educational opportunities to the public so as to increase understanding within African communities of internet technical and policy issues (Bylaws 3.4). 
My proposal is to move this discussion to national, regional and gobal Internet Governance Forum (IGF) and to AUC and regional economic communities (RECS) in charge of public policies. 

    * Arab Maghreb Union (UMA) 
    * Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) 
    * Community of Sahel-Saharan States (CEN-SAD) 
    * East African Community (EAC) 
    * Economic Community of Central African States (ECCAS) 
    * Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) 
    * Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) 
    * Southern African Development Community (SADC) 

Best Regards

And section 4 of the IANA’s report on recognition of AfriNIC as a Regional Internet Registry(1) reads : 

4) Neutrality and impartiality in relation to all interested parties, and particularly the LIRs 

The AfriNIC application satisfies Principle 4. AfriNIC is an independent, not-for-profit, and open membership association. The submitted AfriNIC bylaws and policies provide for equal treatment, fair distribution of resources, and impartial treatment of members and requestors. As reaffirmed in AfriNIC’s application: 

The AfriNIC organizational structure is set to encourage a bottom-up self governance management model where policies and other organizational functions are determined by the community in general and members who elect representatives that sit on the Board of Directors. 

As confirmed by the NRO, AfriNIC’s activities during the transition period have demonstrated full compliance with these principles. 


Principle 4 of the ICP-2 which defines criteria for establishment of new regional internet registries (2)
