Result of vote: 3 approvals, 3 disapprovals, 1 abstain. One deputy approves, one deputy disapproves. As the vote is a tied vote, § 9 IV of the statutes come to effect. The Chairperson has the deciding vote, and voted +1 to the proposal. Therefore: Decision: The request has been accepted. This message is to be archived by the BoD members and their deputies.
AFAICT this outcome stems from the fact there it was a yes/no type of vote, so yays “for a short-term period” (quoting Lothar, but there were other BoD members with that understanding) were counted alongside enthusiastic yays. Given the short-term period isn't binding, in practice the vote might be interpreted as a definitive +1. Could the BoD clarify the short-term period and maybe even commit to revisit the vote say, before the end of their term? Cheers, -- Guilhem.
