I guess I have more faith in the AfriNIC community than you do.
I do not believe that the electorate is a bunch of lemmings as you claim.
Most of the electorate that I have come to know over many years participating in this process are intelligent people I respect.
I cannot deny that there are a few I would say have some lemming-like traits, but they are definitely not the majority of the community.
If the majority of the community is as bad as you say, then I don’t think that any process for electing co-chairs or any efforts to preclude certain individuals from running will fix the situation.
Fortunately, I do not think it is as dire as you claim.
FWIW, I would not vote for the recalled chairs again and I doubt that any significant fraction of the electorate would. However, that should be up to the voters.
