Dear All,
In the virtual meeting today at 0400 Korean Time, I express my strong
objection to exclude any AC or OS from exercising its fundamental right at
this stage.
GAC has not yet formally decided nor announced that it will not wish to
participate in community empowerment to exercise its rights to vote
They just indicated that they wish to retain the rights that currently
granted to it in providing advice to ICANN Board in application of its
operating Principle NO 47.
They are studying the matter and could come back to CCWG at later stage
.As it was discussed ,in any democratic society no individual or group of
individual are excluded to vote .their very rights to vote are included in
the Constitution of the society
However, one they receive the ballot vote they may decide to vote or not
according to the circumstances.
In view of the above, CCWG has no right to decide about the GAC before GAC
formally inform the CCWG and the Community that it prefers to be
permanently excluded from any right to vote in future .
What is the risk if CCWG exclude GAC from participation at any voting on a
global basis?
Suppose that such  inappropriate decision is made without explicit
agreement of GAC, if in future any SO or AC or ICANN make a decision or
modify Bylaws which has direct impact on the Governments very interest and
GAC is unable to express its views in voting the only possibility exist
would be GAC make recourse to modify Bylaws to be able to VOTE. However, if
such modification does not carried forward , the GAC remained in the middle
Pls seriously reconsider the matter and provide the rights for ALL AC and
to be able to exercise its very right and leave it to those SO and AC to
exercise or not that right .
Pls do not make attempts to just please certain entities or individual who
has been taking a very hostile attitude in regard with GAC.
I am waiting your immediate remedial actions
