The Board of Directors election polls for the contested chapters have closed. We have a candidate with a simple majority for the Japan Chapter, namely Eric Ghislain NOUTCHA FOSSO.

For the Central Africa Chapter, there is a tie between two candidates. There will therefore be a new poll for the Central Africa Chapter position on the Board of Directors. The ballot will only have the names of the two candidates in the tie and the poll will close on Monday, 13 May, at 23:59 Central African Time (CAT). Members in the Central Africa Chapter will receive a separate email with a link to the new poll.

Please be reminded that the applications for the CEO position of the Executive Management remains the same. The deadline is today (May 11) at 23:59 CAT and tomorrow (May 12) at 06:59 JST. Please read this post for more information.

The Electoral Commission
