Nuri, just to be clear, I argued that we should not change current procedures
while the governance committee is considering them, but I did NOT argue (or
at least did not mean to argue) that ballot results should be kept secret.
Kim did express Executive Committee's arguments in that regard, but they are
not mine. I probably should not say until the governance committee has had a
chance to review the matter, but (subject to further disucssion that may
persuade me otherwise) I am inclined to favour releasing vote totals.
Regards, Bob Drummond
