Can someone from the EC please tell us when the last two people in the
above list were added as board members? On what basis they were
selected? Was there any such announcement? May be I am seriously
missing something.

With so much of turbulence happening in the EC, people leaving without
giving reasons, new board members getting added etc etc, can the EC
please let us know on the work what is currently going on in the EC.
At least they can answer the queries raised by the election committee.
