Hi Anivar, I wish to know about the procedure of the selection of Election committee and Returning officer. I know you've membership in all the available mailing lists, you used to keep "Activist" phrase in all your email signatures, and I know that you are a great propaganda pusher (Mostly your personal propagandas :-)). But I wish to know your actual contributions to these projects or community.
I believe that a person who acting as a returning officer must be truthful atleast to himselft. Last time I saw you in Malayalam Wikipedia to teach us that Wikimedians must 'suffer' ULS in developer insisted form because what Wikipedia is technocracy not democracy. Here you are acting as a returning officer. That bit is too hard for me to understand. I know that there are manyy allegations against you including recent one from a female fellow feminism activist. Personally I didn't see any explanation from you anywhere even-though there is a vast discussion in facebook and other social medias about this issue. I don't knnow that whether you sexually offended anybody anywhere. But I believe that you cannot pop up somewhere else without explaining yourself anywhere after such a big accusation. OR may be I am missing explanation from your side. I know nothiing about others though.
