823 - rather than have a year go by, make it four months, or during an election triggered by a member resignation.
PC> This is a specific suggestion to deal with the the next year (before the October 2012 elections.) I believe that the wording in the document is simple and appropriate.
SS> If this only applies up to 2012 then please add text limiting the life of this clause to the Oct 2012 elections. But clarification is needed on how to handle seats not filled in an election. Suggestion: the process for filling resigned seats is good enough. "If a seat is not filled during an election, another election shall be held as prescribed by the rules for filling a seat vacated by a member who has resigned."
SS> I am uncertain why there is pressure to compress the EC before we as an EC formally agree to do this. The efficiency of the operation of the EC appears to be dependent on issues other than its size.
