> Hello Daniel,


> I think what Noah was referring to was the invocation of section 3.3 in

> part which says:


> *If the Working Group Chair is unable to serve his or her full term, the

> Working Group may select a replacement to serve the remainder of the term.

> If the Working Group Chairs are unable to attend the Public Policy Meeting,

> the Working Group shall nominate a Chair for the session. Anyone present at

> the meeting, whether in person or by remote participation, may participate

> in the selection process for a temporary Chair.*



> If memory serves me right ( which i'm pretty sure it does) what happened

> in Botswana as i was also present at that meeting and infact had the honour

> to do the nomination of Dewole on floor of the the PPM was that Seun

> resigned, and the ECOM which is powered by AFRINIC staff made the call at

> the meeting. NoMCoM was not involved.


I also remember exactly that.....

> I believe that Madhvi is doing is in absolute order given the

> circumstances we find ourselves. Therefore, this is not a matter that

> neccessary needs to be going before the NoMCoM. The PDWG can self organise

> and that is what is happening here. The whole idea is to drive a concensus

> by the secretariat based on serving the interest of the PDWG.



> I believe that the conversation should be, how we get the interim chairs "

> *SELECTED*" from within the working group? I also do not see any word

> around "ELECTION" but selection by the WG.

> We need to be mindful of the words in the CPM.
