Motion to ammend update GNSO Council Operating Procedure
Whereas the original language recommend by the GNSO Operations Work
Team stated on page 5 of the Operating Procedure that
> To pass, a motion must attain a majority of the votes cast in each
house unless otherwise specified in these procedures or in the ICANN
Bylaws. Abstentions count as votes cast and shall include a reason
for the abstention. This has the effect of making an abstention
count the same as a vote against except as described in ICANN
Bylaws, ANNEX A, GNSO Policy-Development Process, Section 3,
Initiation of PDP.
The language will be replaced with the following:
> Unless otherwise specified in these procedures or in the ICANN
Bylaws, to pass a motion or other action, greater than 50% of the
eligible voters in each House must cast affirmative votes. For all
votes taken, the number of eligible voters in each House shall be
fixed to the number of seats allocated in the Bylaws (a.k.a. the
denominator) and is not affected by the number of members present or
absent at the meeting in which the motion or other action is
initiated. Council members are permitted to abstain in any vote, but
must provide a reason which shall be recorded in the minutes along
with the abstention.
