on the vote count, let me explain the mechanism:
We have three votes in support (Thorsten, Lothar, Cor) and we have three
votes not in support (Emiliano, Daniel, Franklin). Michael abstained.
One deputy (Nicolas) is in support, one deputy (Paolo) is not in
support. The deputy votes, however, are not counted "technically".
That means we have three votes in favor, three votes not in favor, and
As summarized in the vote tally, that means we have a tie. As per § 9 IV
of the statutes, in this case, the vote of the chairperson (if they are
absent from the vote, which they weren't however, it would be the deputy
chairperson) is the deciding one.
That does not mean the chairperson has a second vote - as summarized,
the vote is and stays 3 vs. 3. "4" was not mentioned.
As the chairperson, Lothar, voted in favor, this is the vote that is
deciding, and as such, the request has been approved.
