The public Comment period has commenced on the Proposed Change to ICANN 
Bylaws Regarding the Number of GNSO Council Representatives.

Proposed change to the ICANN Bylaws:

Subject to the provisions of the Transition Article of these Bylaws, the 
GNSO Council shall consist of three representatives selected by each of 
the Constituencies described in Section 5 of this Article, and three 
persons selected by the ICANN Nominating Committee. No two 
representatives selected by a Constituency shall be citizens of the same 
country or of countries located in the same Geographic Region. There may 
also be two liaisons to the GNSO Council, one appointed by each of the 
Governmental Advisory Committee and the At-Large Advisory Committee from 
time to time, who shall not be members of or entitled to vote on the 
GNSO Council, but otherwise shall be entitled to participate on equal 
footing with members of the GNSO Council. The appointing Advisory 
Committee shall designate its liaison (or revoke or change the 
designation of its liaison) on the GNSO Council by providing written 
notice to the Chair of the GNSO Council and to the ICANN Secretary. The 
GNSO Council may also have observers as described in paragraph 9 of this 

The proposed change is to replace "two" with "three" and leave the 
article otherwise unchanged.
