the statement that "a new consensus has been reached" is not acceptable to the representatives of the ALAC, who have agreed neither to a sudden reversal of the decision taken in London (3 co-Chairs), nor to the subsequent nomination of one candidate.
This has been referred to the ALAC, whose consolidated position will be made known shortly.

>*_Role Of The Chair-Alternate (Draft v 1.0)_*
>As a result of the consultation since the first meeting of the IANA 
>Stewardship Transition Coordination Group (ICG) a new consensus has 
>emerged among those that have commented.There will be one Chair and an 
>Alternate.. A call for volunteers remains open among committee members

>collaboratively was seen as essential to the role.It was also suggested 
>by some that considerations of diversity would be desirable in the 
>choice of officers. Finally it was suggested that a more precise resume 
>of the roles would be useful, which is the purpose of this draft.
>*Comment and Selection Process*
>This Draft, Chair-Alternate (draft 1.0) has incorporated the requested 
>changes from commentators, with one compromise – there was a minority 
>request for more than one chair to share the work.I have proposed that 
>the Chair and Alternate can self-organize the work between 
>themselves.This maintains one clear Chair, while allowing for the 
>Alternate to support the chair as well.
>The final deadline for comments and additional volunteers by 2:00PM CET 
>Thursday July 24th to the list under the subject “Role of the 
>Chair-Alternate draft v 1.0 for comment and volunteers”.The Role of the 
>Chair-Alternate document and list of volunteers will be posted on
