Dear Jean-Jacques and colleagues,
I must say I'm surprised by this ALAC proposal because it seems to me not
consistent with what we have heard so far from ALAC and have found most
agreement to after vivid discussion on the list - namely the 3 (co-)chair
I'm asking myself why this shouldn't lead other member groups thinking about
earlier models already discussed or new ones.
In addition the process may have to be detailed with respect to the voting
>From my point of view I can say that the 3 chair model (as well as 1 or 2)
is backed by the CSG I'm representing. Re the ALAC proposal I'd like to
refer back to them. As a constituency call has been already scheduled for
Monday 11 Aug I could only come back after this call. I'd like the ICG
taking this into consideration when scheduling the process.
In between I understand the call for (co-,vice-) chair positions is already
open independent from the number of positions. In this regard I welcom
Mohamed's nomination. Maybe Alissa could update us on the candidacies so

Subject: Re: [Internal-cg] Chair structure.
as announced yesterday, I am now forwarding a proposal that the ALAC has
developed for the Chair structure of our group.
As you remember, in London the ALAC representatives were among the first to
support the enlargement of the GAC contingent from 2 to 5, while ensuring
that the ALAC, as a token of its commitment to keep the size of our group
close to what it was, would not seek a similar privilege for itself.
The ALAC's call for implementing the decision taken in London (3 Co-Chairs)
was based on stated principles: diversity, adequate representation,
fairness. While maintaining these principles, the ALAC is keen to help our
process along by proposing a new structure, incorporating these principles
as well as some elements discussed online since the London meeting.
Here is the ALAC proposal:
- Chair + 4 Vice-Chairs, these 5 being from the 5 different regions (as per
- No region or citizenship may occupy more than one of these positions.
There shall be no automatic entitlement of any region to the position of
- Interim Chair is requested to launch a call for candidates for the 5
positions on the leadership team. It is suggested that these should reach
Interim Chair by Monday 11 August at 23:59 UTC.
- Interim Chair would then publish the list of candidates, each with
her/his relevant data (full name, business or other affiliation,
organization represented, region, citizenship), and set a date for the vote.
- The result of the vote to be published immediately, and the new
leadership to convene as soon as possible.
In order to ensure adequate representation of the global Internet user
community, Jean-Jacques Subrenat (European region, citizen of France) has
decided to withdraw his candidacy for the position of Co-Chair, and is
nominating Mohamed El-Bashir (African region, citizen of Sudan) for
Vice-Chair. Mohamed has accepted to be nominated, and his candidacy is
endorsed by the ALAC.
