Thank-you Mary,

Accordingly, this motion should be added to the agenda with the prefix 


In order to flag it as a motion subject to the procedure 3.3.2 outlined

And we should discuss as part of the informal preparatory meeting on Tuesday
@ 18h00 local time.

Hello everyone,

Following up on Avri¹s request that the Council consider a waiver of the
10-day deadline for submission of a motion to be voted on by the Council,
here is the requisite procedure from Section 3.3.2 of the GNSO Operating

If a motion is submitted after the Submission Deadline, the GNSO Council
shall consider the motion if the following requirements are met:
a. The motion (including any report or other supporting documentation) is
submitted to the GNSO Council at least 24 hours in advance of the GNSO
Council meeting;
b. The motion is accompanied by a request to consider the motion despite
submission after the Submission Deadline (a ³Request for Consideration²);
c. A vote on the Request for Consideration shall be called as the first
order of business for the agenda item that deals with the motion. The vote
on the Request for Consideration must be unanimous (i.e., all Councilors
or their proxies must vote and all votes cast must be in favor of
considering the motion at such GNSO Council meeting) for the motion to be
considered at such GNSO Council meeting.

Thanks and cheers
