Possible RALO Petition Process to Suggest Additional ICANN Board Director Candidates Selected by the At-Large Community 

Pursuant to Section 19.9 of the ALAC Rules of Procedure, the BMSPC process involves the option of possible petitions by RALOs to suggest adding Candidates to the Final Slate. RALOs can only suggest Candidates who had previously submitted an EoI to the BCEC during the current selection process. Candidates will be added only if they receive support through a formal vote of at least three of the five RALOs; each RALO shall vote according to its respective rules. Subsequently, the Final Slate of Candidates will proceed to an election by the ALAC Members and RALO Chairs, which is culmination of the ICANN Board Director selection process. 

Possible RALO Petition Process starts from now. Please note the following two deadlines: 

  • By Thursday, 19 January 2017 at 23:59 UTC, each RALO willing to add Candidates to the Slate should have identified additional Candidates and notified the BMSPC. 
  • By Sunday, 29 January 2017 at 23:59 UTC, in case of petition, all RALOs should have decided whether they support any suggested additional Candidates and notified the BMSPC. 

Kindly note that RALOs have the option to identify and/or support additional Candidates but are not required to do so, if they believe that only the BCEC Slate of Candidates should be in the Final Slate.
