Thanks Avri.

If that is the case I object to them participating as 'observers'.

We have been criticised recently for not spending enough time solving problems. I don't see how having to spend time on a call "backfilling" new Councillors will be productive. Let them participate and listen to the discussions but not contribute - let them do that through the existing members.

Secondly, I believe that the old members are specifically taking time to "handover" the many items in Seoul (and receiving funding specifically for this purpose).

Sorry if i was unclear.  i was suggesting that they be there as  
But I was not explicit in the part I wrote for that message, only in  
the part I included from a previous message.

BTW, 'as observers' normally means, in a GNSO context, that they can  
participate just not vote or make motions.
