Subject: BGC Recommendation on Reconsideration Request 13-3

Dear Board Governance Committee,

                As you may be aware, the GNSO Council has had the opportunity to review the BGC Recommendation on Reconsideration Request 13-3, which can be found at http://www.icann.org/en/groups/board/governance/reconsideration/recommendation-ncsg-16may13-en.pdf (Recommendation) during its regular monthly Council meeting on June 16, 2013.

Although the Council in no way intends to interfere with outcomes of Reconsideration Requests in general, some Councillors have voiced concerns with the implications of the rationale used by the BGC in support of the Recommendation.

 These concerns were expressed during the Council call and on the Council mailing list and centre around the perceived potential impact of the Recommendation on the GNSO and more broadly, the bottom-up, multi-stakeholder model.

                We therefore respectfully ask the BGC to thoroughly review the rationale of the Reconsideration Request and consider deferral of the publication of the rationale until such time that a more complete discussion on this matter can take place with the community in July at the ICANN meeting in Durban.


Jonathan Robinson
GNSO Council Chair
