Of course, I'm interested in an ideal process - but I'm more interested in a good outcome here. Is there anything in that announcement that particularly worries you and/or that shows any sort of bias or somesuch ? I imagine that this is substantially a boiler-plate mail - presumably re-used from the last one that we sent out two years ago - it doesn't end: "Vote for Cor!" I am assuming (not that I read it carefully ;-) ie. this is a pure theoretical process purity issue, not any real concern ? >> I asked Cor to make his candidacy as early as possible so that the MC >> has the ability to react. Cor makes this in a fine way (for me) as he >> didn't wait too long. Good =) so - we are transparent; I guess I'd leave the rest for the electorate - assuming that Cor is indeed recused from further any MC role until after the elections are concluded. > I think we talk about different things here.

IIRC several people did that. It is clear that when you elect someone, they may resign from post for all manner of reasons - I can't think of a better reason than coming to serve on the board. Having said that - in general, it is clearly better for most of the MC to serve a full term so we have continuity in the MC. FWIW - I was rather in favor of 1 year terms for both BoD & MC in the 1st instance which would make this rather less of a problem (IMHO). > He needs to explain, why he'll not serve the whole period and > /or if there is an emergency to apply for another body. I imagine Cor's candidacy statement will explain that sort of thing. It seems pretty clear to me that if the electorate share your lack of happiness with that, they have a free and anonymous vote to express that with - which will (I assume) result in Cor staying in the MC. Traditionally I'm not so sure that they've minded.
