[rpd] AFRINIC Policy Development Process Bis Proposal: the way forward

Hello everyone,

Initiators  of the new pdp-bis proposal AFPUB-2017-GEN-002-DRAFT-01
[1],  in an effort to improve the policy, are willing to hear from the
working group, about settling the matter around one chair and a
vice-chair  compared to the current model of 2 cochairs .

In the current situation, chairs with the same level of responsabilities
can get stuck when making decision towards a policy proposal thus
hindering its progress. Working group discussion moderation by two
independent individuals can be  inefficient. This lack of "consensus"
between co-chairs freezes the working group operations as well as the
policy development process

Our proposal aims to settle those issues with one chair who makes the
final decision and  a vice chair.

Community might be concerned about giving one single Chair, too much
power. The balance with that is found in stricking deeply the appeal
process to make it as larger as possible and open to anybody at any step
of a policy proposal's life.

During AIS17 in Nairobi, initiators have gathered positive comments from
the floor, some supporting linguistic diversity between Chairs. We're
willing to pursue the debate and bring some new air to the proposal.

Thanks all beforehand for your comments.
