At-Large Director Election Mayhem Begins

ICANN's At-Large Advisory Committee today discussed concerns raised by the EURALO regarding timelines for the At-Large Director voting process.  Unfortunately, the decision regarding timelines is not within the ALAC's remit; that decision belongs to the At-Large Board Selection Design Team (ABSdt) which hasn't scheduled a time yet to discuss the issue.  

Complicating matters further is a purported decision of the Board Candidate Evaluation Committee (BCEC) to not release the full list of candidates before the preliminary BCEC-approved slate is released (which makes it almost impossible for the non-approved candidates to successfully petition three of the five RALOs for inclusion onto the ultimate slate within the scant amount time that has been set aside for campaigning purposes).

A Doodle poll has been started to find a suitable time at the end of this week or early next week for the ABSdt members to meet.
