      • Masato, Hi,

        "I think real issue in Monte Video statement is somebody (I guess ICANN) forced other internet bodies
        to sign it urgently without allowing enough consultation time with communities of each organizations."

        What can be the reason? Is it because majority of EC's sovereign's position is contrary?

        Regards & best wishes

        And, as I wrote in previous e-mail, similar situation is going again.

        I have big concern since it may break the multi-stake holder model.

        Rgs,

        Thanks Maemura for your response;

        ".... it was signed off by Paul after the EC authorized, which itself was not recorded, and the EC afterward ratified the support and announced it...."

        Yes EC had ratified it after more than 3 & 1/2 months of signing it.

        " I understand your point. It might need some improved procedure of ours to have increased transparency."

        Appreciate your response. I think the same is being advocated by others participating in this thread mail. Transparency is a must as the concerns/issues are obvious and yes, mistakes can happen.

        Hi Naresh,

        They are usually over conversations on the EC's mailing-list, and not yet been really recorded for the sake of disclosure.

        We have an electronic voting process to make decision between quarterly EC meetings, but I haven't thought it really suitable for these. With that though, in case of Montevideo Statement, it was signed off by Paul after the EC authorized, which itself was not recorded, and the EC afterward ratified the support and announced it.

        I understand your point. It might need some improved procedure of ours to have increased transparency.

        Best,
        Akinori
