[rpd] Policy Development Working Group co-Chairs selection

Before moving on, there are three issues that still remain unanswered :

1, Why are we disqualifying Anthony from the running? Did he violate any
CPM rules? Are there criteria for a co-chair he does not fill? If you think
he should not be a co-chair then by all means do not vote for him, but allow
him to run. Nobody should hinder him based on a technicality that could be
potentially moved for others like the deadline.

2, Any elected co-chair now should only serve until the next meeting where
we can elect legitimate co-chair following the CPM. They should not
overstay their terms.

3, What happened to the candidacy of Ibeanusi? Why’d you just drop him? He
should be an eligible candidate as well. There should be a vote, and it
seems like somebody is trying hard to subvert that...
