Part 2 _Each House determines a Candidate_
After council wide nominations are closed, each house will be allowed to select
one candidate for GNSO Council Chair from the pool of nominees.
A candidate for GNSO Council Chair does not need to be a member of the house
selecting the candidate. Should the non voting NCA be elected as chair he/she
would be a non-voting chair.
Each house must announce their chosen candidate by 21 October 2009 at 23 UTC.
The two houses may, separately, select the same candidate from the nominee pool
if they so wish.
The candidates from each of the houses shall have the opportunity of meeting
with Council Members at the GNSO Working Group sessions in Seoul on Saturday
morning, 24 October 2009.
B. PROPOSED SCHEDULE FOR THE VOTING
For this election, the voting will take place at the public Council meeting in
Seoul on Wednesday, 28 October 2009.
Avri Doria, current GNSO Council chair, will serve as non-voting chair of the
bicameral Council meeting on 28 October until such time as a new chair is
elected, at which time the new chair will assume the chair responsibilities.
If an absentee ballot is required to complete the chair's election, this will
be a 24 hour ballot scheduled to end on 29 October. If no chair has been
elected by the end of the Annual meeting on 30 October, the vice-chairs will
assume the chair responsibilities as defined in the Bylaws and a runoff will be
scheduled as determined in the Council Procedures.
The winning candidate needs 60% of the votes of each house.
The Council shall inform the Board and the Community appropriately and post the
election results on the GNSO website within 2 business days following the
In the event that the GNSO Council has not elected a GNSO Council Chair by the
end of the previous Chair's term, the Vice-Chairs will serve as Interim GNSO
Co-Chairs until a successful election can be held.
