Thanks for your support. Sébastien

Date: Fri, 26 Nov 2010 13:13:07 +1100 Subject: ANNOUNCEMENT : Results from Round 1 voting for At-Large selected Board Member for seat #15 of ICANN Board%%% Voting for Round 1 voting for At-Large selected Board Member for seat #15 of ICANN Board, has now been completed and the poll has closed, the vote is quorate and the results show that a Round 2 vote is now required to be held. The ABSdt processes (as approved) state that, should it be required, a Round 2 will be held:”26 – 28 November: Second round of online voting.” This announcement is to both release the results of Round 1 and to prepare the At-Large electorate to undertake their Round 2 vote. The percentage table results from the Round 1 vote are shown below: Names. Votes % %%% Sébastien Bachollet 43.75%%% Pierre Dandjinou 25.00*%%% Alan Greenberg 31.25 This shows that the candidate who will drop out with the lowest percentage support (number of votes), and not continue to round 2 vote is Pierre Dandjinou*. I have now instructed staff to set up a Round 2 vote on Big Pulse which will start ASAP on 26 November and run through 28 November at 23:59 UTC. The vote will be between Sebastien Bachollet and Alan Greenberg (listed in that order) . Voter options will be to select one (1) preferred candidate; All electorate members should expect to receive their voting credentials from staff and the usual announcements re the vote, within the next 12 hrs => If you do not receive your voting credential please contact staff directly. Note also that the previous ‘in the event of a tie’ arrangements will be in place -> good luck to both of the remaining candidates… I have also requested staff to arrange for suitable wider publication of these results and the Round 2 vote beginning through the wider At-Large and ICANN announcements mechanisms as soon as possible. Please also not I have taken the liberty of emailing the three candidates in the Round 1 vote and informing them of these results, whilst thanking all of them for their contribution and ongoing support of this important and landmark selection process, I’m sure I reflect the feelings of the community when I also specifically thank Pierre here in this message for his willingness to serve as the At-Large selected ICANN Board member, and for his active and professional participation in the campaigning processes; and that we look forward to his renewed and continuing involvement with At-Large and the ALAC’s work within ICANN. Finally as soon as possible after the Round 2 vote closes (and any tie is broken by the random method previously outlined) I will inform the community of the outcome and write to the ICANN Company Secretary Mr. John Jeffrey, informing him of the At-Large selected person for seat #15 of the ICANN Board of Directors, so that they may take their role on the Board as planned at the Cartagena meeting.
