[rpd] Call for interest for PDWG chairs closed & Way forward

Mon Apr 5 20:44:26 UTC 2021

Hi Fernando,

The PDP states that in case a chair can’t serve the full term, a replacement is selected for the remainder of the term.

So, the terms stated by the staff look to me following the PDP.

The PDP fails to indicate if in case of a recall of the chairs, there should be a different provision, which I will say it will be coherent with the situation,

However, once we select the chair, we could agree in a very simple 1-paragraph policy proposal, using the section 3.6 (varying the process), in order to change that.

Something such as:

“In case any of the chairs have been recalled, the selected replacement will serve a full term in such way that it coincides with the staggered two-year terms ending after the closer PPM to match the term.“

I think it is a special situation that deserves that addition to the PDP and hopefully we can reach consensus on that even if is not used anymore in the future.

Surely I agree that the NomCom to provide their input from 8th April and let the PDWG know which candidates fit the criteria for running for position Co-Chair.

What I find strange is the PDWG to have all this work to select someone to serve for only 2 months. I was under the impression the two selected would serve, one until the PPM in 2022 and the other until the next PPM in 2023. In any way the positive side if that in the next PPM we will have already 2 Co-Chairs to conduct the work being carried during the event.

5. Darwin Da Costa from Angola, Country of Residence: Angola

6. Ibeanusi Elvis from Nigeria, Country of Residence: Japan

2. Additional elements

a. Nominee - Ibeanusi Elvis

This nomination which was received as a self-nomination appeared to have been made later than the deadline. This was due to a back-end issue on self-nomination forms that was addressed during the day today. We confirm that the nomination has been posted on the system within the deadline.

b. Nominee - Widjane Goubi

In regard to the nominee, Wijdane Goubi, kindly note that on the 5th of April 2021, AFRINIC has been informed by an email sent from the designated nominator on the nomination paper that the latter never provided its support to the said nomination. He has therefore requested AFRINIC to delete all its associated personal data in connection thereof. In this respect, and to comply with the Mauritian Data Protection Act 2017, AFRINIC has a duty to cause such deletion forthwith and you are accordingly informed of the same. “

3. Tenure of Office

We would like to remind the Working Group that as stated in Section 3.3 of the Consolidated Policy Manual, one Co-Chair will serve a term ending by the PPM to be held in June 2021 only whereas the other will serve a term ending in June 2022.

4. Next Steps

Now that the Call for Interests is closed, the next step is for the Working Group to find consensus on the most suitable persons to replace the recalled PDWG Co-Chairs.

This exercise, including the carrying out of such due diligence and shortlisting of candidates/nominees, would under normal circumstances be carried out by the Nomination Committee (NomCom).

For your information, the present NomCom has indicated that they would be available to conduct such exercise only from April 8th 2021. With only 6 candidates, we will leave the decision on the best way of carrying out the due diligence and shortlisting process to the PDWG participants.

We therefore request you to agree on how the Working Group would like to proceed with the selection of the 2 replacing PDWG’s Co-Chairs.

Kind Regards

Policy Liaison Team


Cher PDWG,

L'appel à manifestation d'intérêt pour la sélection des coprésidents du PDWG conformément à la section 3.3 de la CPM est désormais terminé.

1. Liste des nominés

AFRINIC a reçu six (6) candidatures qui sont les suivantes :

1.Wijdane Goubi du Maroc, Pays de résidence : Maroc

2. Anthony Ikechukwu Ubah du Nigeria, Pays de résidence : Canada

3. Vincent Ngundi du Kenya, Pays de résidence : Kenya

4. Abdulkarim Oloyede du Nigeria, Pays de résidence : Nigeria

5. Darwin Da Costa de l'Angola, Pays de résidence : Angola

6. Ibeanusi Elvis du Nigeria, Pays de résidence : Japon

2. Éléments supplémentaires

a. Candidat - Ibeanusi Elvis

Cette nomination, qui a été reçue en tant qu'auto-nomination, semblait avoir été faite au-delà de la date limite. Cela était dû à un problème de back-end sur les formulaires d'auto-nomination qui a été résolu aujourd'hui dans la journée. Nous confirmons que la nomination a été postée dans le système dans les délais impartis.

b. Candidat - Widjane Goubi

En ce qui concerne la candidate, Wijdane Goubi, veuillez noter que le 5 avril 2021, l'AFRINIC a été informée par un courriel envoyé par son prétendu nominateur que ce dernier n'a jamais apporté son soutien à ladite candidature. Il a donc demandé à l'AFRINIC de supprimer toutes les données personnelles associées à cette candidature. À cet égard, et pour se conformer à la loi mauricienne sur la protection des données de 2017, AFRINIC a le devoir de procéder à ladite suppression sans délai et vous en êtes par conséquent informé.

3. Durée du mandat

Nous souhaitons rappeler au groupe de travail que, comme indiqué à la section 3.3 du CPM, l'un des co-présidents exercera son mandat jusqu'à la PPM qui se tiendra en juin 2021 seulement, tandis que l'autre exercera son mandat jusqu'en juin 2022.

4. Prochaines étapes

Maintenant que l'appel à manifestation d'intérêt est terminé, la prochaine étape consiste pour le groupe de travail à trouver un consensus sur les personnes les plus aptes à remplacer les coprésidents du PDWG destitués.

Cet exercice, qui comprend la réalisation d'une évaluation diligente et la sélection des candidats nominés, sera normalement effectué par le comité de nomination (NomCom).

Pour votre information, le NomCom actuel a indiqué qu'il ne serait disponible pour mener cet exercice qu'à partir du 8 avril 2021. Avec seulement 6 candidats, nous laisserons aux participants du PDWG le soin de décider de la meilleure façon de mener à bien le processus de sélection en faisant preuve de diligence raisonnable.

Nous vous demandons donc de vous accorder sur la manière dont le groupe de travail pourrait procéder à la sélection des deux coprésidents remplaçants du PDWG.

Nos Salutations
