It is helpful to have the view of the ICANN staff.

I would, however, add that irregularities in the election of Board Members is a
serious matter. We should additional;y  require enquiry by an independent party
totally unconnected to ICANN and I so propose.

In which section of the ICANN By-laws or  election rules is this provision contained?
It sounds like you are quoting from particular paragraphs

Please supply a reference to these provisions so that we can determine how they apply
to the current circumstances in which we find ourselves.

Thanks for your help.
Kind regards
