Thanks Wolf-Ulrich for your feedback. Maybe I can turn the question around and share with you the original timeline for the election which was approved by the GNSO Council following review and discussion (see Proposed time table for Election of the GNSO Council Chair<http://gnso.icann.org/en/drafts/gnso-council-chair-election-24jul15-en.pdf>)? It may be helpful for everyone to review and provide feedback in hindsight whether the timing should have been different factoring in some of the elements you outline below so it can help inform future election time lines?

Best regards,

Subject: [council] council chair election

Hi Marika and Glen,

as discussed during the (new) council development session in Dublin communication between the parties involved in the council chair election process is essential. I tried to shed some light on this and would like to ask for your assistance.

Parties involved:

houses: CPH, NCPH; nominate each 1 chair candidate + 1 vice chair
council members, selected by their respective SG, C; vote
NCAs: selected by NomCom; 2 vote, 1 non voting

times to be taken into consideration:

designation of new council NCAs by NomCom
designation of new council members by SGs/Cs
nomination of chair candidates by houses

Only when this has been achieved the various communication channels deemed to be needed can be activated:

chair candidates to SGs/Cs from both houses
chair candidates to NCAs
SGs/Cs internal and between each other inside the house
SGs/Cs between houses
SGs/Cs to NCAs


check whether this is useful and complete
provide timeline relative to the election

Thanks and best regards
