Dear Co-Chairs

The number Governments expressing /manifesting serious concerns on the
three Recommendations, 1, 2 and mainly 11 is growing. Now 12 countries have
formally manifest their objections

These concerns are focused on the manner the CCWG attempting to treat
GAC in an imbalance manner with respect to other ICANN Constituencies .The
CCWG Co- Chairs are urged to explore all ways and means to  adequately
respond to these   growing serious concerns taking into account the long
standing principle of universality ,fairness and equal treatments of all
Multistakeholders communities in an inclusive, transparent and democratic

We are members of one family , ICANN Family , and thus deserve to be  properly,
equally and fairly treated

There are still opportunity /opportunities to remedy the cause of these


   We may go back to call 80 on Rec 11 with two options of Simple Majority
   and 2/3 FOR THE REJECTION OF GAC ADVICE BY THE BOARD and try to further
   discus that in removing the famous so-called Carve-Out which is the  main
   cause of some ,if not all ,of these concerns  .

   Two  address the threshold of 4 SO/AC required to recall the entire
   Board in all cases or at least for cases in which IRP is not available

   Apply the Carve-out all SOs/ACs or to all ACs Treat and still discuss
   the threshold of 4 SOs / ACs for the removal of the entire Board

   *Should you not succeed to find compromise then submit multiple options
   to NTIA? *

Irrespective of that amend Annexes 1 and 2 in regard with the adjustments
of the threshold if the No. of SOS &ACs changed in either direction and
exempt the Board Recall for that threshold
