[ga] Two things troubling me with the GA Chair elections...
Two things started bothering me this morning regarding the current
GA Chair elections:
1) The NC and officers of the DNSO are being allowed to vote -- something
that Caroline Chicoine changed the voting procedures to allow at the
very last minute.
Elizabeth Porteneuve, the person responsible for the voting rules and
the Secretariat for the DNSO, has officially voiced support for a
candidate, as has Ken Stubbs, one of the Registrars NC members.
While I do believe the NC members have a right to participate in the
GA, I find it improper that they be allowed to influence a decision
on which they have final say.
2) Discussions among the NC made it clear that they would not be willing
to accept a result in which only one or two candidates were put forth
for their selection. Yet clearly, this is what's about to happen.
I find it interesting that the NC, who feared we might give them
no choice in the matter, is now content to sit back and let the
process continue as long as their "choice" is a candidate for which
their own members have voiced support.
Am I alleging misconduct? No; at least, not as such. But I must
say that I find this improper.
