The Board proposes the following procedure, to be considered for addition to the election guidelines

9. Removal

9.1 An NRO NC member appointed by the AFRINIC Board may be removed from office at any time by a resolution of the Board.

9.2 An NRO NC member elected by the AFRINIC community may be removed from office through any of the following methods:

(a) A supermajority vote (two-thirds) of the AFRINIC Board, meeting in person or via teleconference, at a meeting where the agenda circulated in advance includes the possible removal of an NRO NC representative.
(b) A majority vote held by the community present at an AFRINIC Public Policy Meeting.

9.3 An individual whose removal is contemplated in terms of 9.2 is entitled to at least 10 calendar days’ notice of the meeting, and may appear before and be heard at such a meeting. Removal may proceed with or without such individual’s presence at the meeting.

9.4 Any ten (10) bona fide members of the AFRINIC community may petition the Board to initiate a removal in terms of 9.2(b), giving at least 40 days’ notice and giving reasons for the contemplated removal. Such petition shall be published. Unless the Board finds that the petition is invalid or frivolous, the Board shall ensure that the agenda of the forthcoming Public Policy Meeting includes the consideration of the removal of the NRO NC member.

9.5 Eligibility to vote for the removal in terms of 9.2(b) shall be determined in the same way as the eligibility to vote for the appointment of candidates.
