[rpd] Nomcom feedback to PDWG

Sat Jun 8 21:07:51 UTC 2019

Hi Dewole, all,

I will agree with your suggestion, it is very important to keep continuity of the existing co-chairs.

Also, I think to avoid wasting precious time, it may be good to consider running the election at the end of the open mic, so even if the election process is delayed for whatever, reason, the PDP discussion time is respected.

One of the elected co-chairs will be running for just one year, or how it will be handled in order to get the staggered terms?

Finally, I've a question for the NomCom and the PDP-chair candidates. And I think this is very important for a successful knowledge by the community to whom they are electing. This is not about electing "your best friend for driving a party", but the people that better knows the PDP and has already been following it.

So, I will like to know, for each of the candidates, since when they have been in the RPD mailing list, how they have contributed in the discussions in the list and meetings, or even with policy proposals. How the candidates are going to support the PDP, increase community participation, etc. Also, we need to understand if they have actively supported or non-supported any of the actual policy proposals, so we can avoid electing two chairs that may have a bias on the same policy proposal.

Reading the actual CVs at, I don't think all the candidates have that information right now.

So, can the NomCom prepare a document answering (with verified responses to some extent) those questions for each of the candidate and publish it together with the CVs ?

    A simple solution to clear any confusion would be for the Nomination 
    Committee to send out a fresh announcement listing the final slate of 
    candidates after their considerations have been done.
    Elections Committee should at this point also state how the seats would 
    be filled so that everyone is clear about that. There have been 
    suggestions on how to fill the positions; better to sort them out now 
    rather than waste scarce time on the policy day.
    My suggestion (and I may be biased) is this:
    Since a current co-chair (Sami) is running, show of hands to see if the 
    working group is in support of Sami retaining his seat. If majority in 
    support of Sami continuing, then remainder of the election is for one 
    seat going to whichever of the remaining candidates has the maximum votes.
    If the outcome of the first vote is not in favour of current co-chair 
    taking a seat by default, then second round of voting can be for 2 seats 
    possibly using the option of higher votes getting the longer term.
    Again, this is just my point of view.
