AW: [council] Reminder - House Candidates for the Chair election n 28 October.

According to the council meeting on Sep 24 the plan is as follows:

Each House will elect a vice chair for the new bicameral Council: 
Nominations must be completed not later than 23 October 2009. 
Elections must be completed not later than Tuesday, 27 October 2009. 
Election requires a simple majority vote.

The plan (part 2) which you submit now calls for earlier dates.
This may not fit to the houses' schedules who don't have a chance to convene and vote before Seoul.

Further question: which council is going to elect the chair on Oct 28, the old or the new one?

Maybe I missed something but I need clarification on this.

Best regards
Wolf-Ulrich Knoben

Just wanted to remind the members of the incoming houses that the  
deadline for the announcement of your single house candidate for chair  
is tomorrow.
