Re: [wg-b] FORMAL BALLOT No. 1
> Voting is scheduled to end on Monday midnight EST.
I am writing to apologise for the lack of a .nz vote being supplied on this very
important issue. The mistake is entirely mine as after a planning meeting
last Friday with .nz representatives, including Peter Dengate-Thrush, I
somehow had convinced myself that the deadline for votes was this coming
Friday Oct 29. In the press of work preparing to fly out on Friday for the
ICANN meeting I neglected to re-check dates.
I realise that our vote is too late, but I thought it appropriate to indicate that
.nz would have voted for Option D (ie both B & C) as it is our position that
there are appropriate international treaty organisations to deal with the issue,
and that a non-governmental, non-statutary, body is not the appropriate
mechanism for developing international law. This is closely aligned with the
New Zealand government position.
Again, my apologies for the mistake.
