I'm sorry, I don't know what this means. Are you requesting disqualification of a candidate? And another recommendation that I think would be worth to follow: "I think it would be too bad to have a longer break before one get elected for another body." I don't think that a good organization/community need to put this into rules/statutes, but should have it in their DNA. But that's not an actionable proposal. What should we do? S.
