Thanks Kavouss,

you are right, there should be a mechanism imposed to settle the consensus designation dispute. Voting could be one means whereby the voting scheme has to be defined.
Maybe there are other ideas...

Best regards

Dear Wolf
Thank you very much for reply
My point is that if one or more ICG Mmember(s) is7are againszt the ruling of the Chir ,They could raise their issue and the matter must be settled by simple explanation or if not resolved by voting . I.E. CHAIR DOES NOT HAVE DECISION MAKING POWER ON HE OR HIS OWN WISHES RATHER TO TAKE INTO ACCOUNT VIEWS OF MEMBERS

And this is what triggers your question about “If several participants in the ICG disagree with the designation given ...”. I’m open to any helpful suggestion on how we could procede in such a case.

  Let me emphasize what you say here, which I strongly agree with.

  We must deliver.

  This implies we must be able to reach consensus.

  The last couple of weeks discussions on various topics makes me a bit pessimistic on the ability for us to reach consensus, but I am optimistic, always optimistic, on peoples ability and interest in actually deliver.

  Remember that the chair is calling on the consensus question, not the substance. That way the power of the chair is decreased to a minimum and process issues.
