Please also note that for this motion to pass, it required a "a
Supermajority Vote of the Council members present".   "A Supermajority
Vote means  a vote of more than sixty-six (66) percent of the members
present at a meeting of the applicable body."
(for reference see section 3(c) and section 16 of Annex A to the ICANN

Qourom for a meeting is defined as "Members entitled to cast a majority
of the total number of votes of GNSO Council members then in office
shall constitute a quorum for the transaction of business"

There were a total of 19, out of a possible 21, Council members present
at the meeting (Norbert Klein and Lucy Nichols were not present)
representing a total of 25 votes out of a possible 27 votes.   This met
the requirement for quorum.   The motion was carried with 18 votes from
members present, which represented a SuperMajority Vote of the Council
members present.
