As someone who was once on the working team elaborating the GNSO rules of operation I'm not that far surprised. I think we all take the council work serious as we do in particular with the election of our chair. The lesson to be learned from the outcome of today's election is that it has to be prepared with more diligence and better communication between the various groups including the NCAs. I hope we can achieve this on the way to the next round.

In the weeks before the election, the recurring theme that I heard from everyone - every single person - was that we would not go wrong whichever candidate we elected. You had two excellent candidates today and managed to elect neither.

I encourage you to go back to your communities and share with them your own disappointment in this result and look for ways to work together in your years ahead.
