Hello this is a great proposal but I have some concerns about some of the
newly adopted procedures.
In section 3.3.1 I don't think it will be right for a chair who has held
the position longest to vacate the position in a scenario where the
cochairs originate from the same country in extreme scenarios. While we aim
to select algorithms to minimize the possibility of a vacant seat at any
point in time we should also try not to break the wheel of experience here.
A longer serving cochair will be more conversant with the affairs of the
PDWG in most cases so I think vacating his or her seat won't be ideal.
Secondly while we aim to sanitize the motives for people contesting for
cochair I don't think a little stipend for co-chairs will do any damage to
the election process for me I think a per sitting allowance or stipend
should be adopted if not already so.
section 3.3.2 will disenfranchise voters. It's possible a deprived voter
might not be active in the rpd but has been abreast with the happenings of
the community. Therefore are we going to say we cannot allow that voter to
cast his or her vote?. A deprived voter might be attending a PPM for the
first time and will feel disenfranchised because I believe the presentation
of the candidates is also an incentive to motivate or give voters an idea
of their portfolio which I think is enough to orientate a newbie attendee
if I may use that phrase .
Without elaborating or handling some of this concerns I think this proposal
cannot be accepted as it is.
