Tijani Ben Jemaa, ALAC member from the African Regional At-Large Organization (AFRALO) and ALAC Executive Committee Member, composed an initial draft of this Statement [PDF, 423 KB], including input from the ALAC Sub-Committee on Finance and Budget, after discussion of the topic within At-Large.
On 24 May 2012 this Statement was posted on the At-Large ICANN Draft FY13 Operating Plan and Budget Workspace.
On that same say, Olivier Crépin-Leblond, Chair of the ALAC, requested At-Large Staff to send a reminder for comments on the draft Statement to all At-Large members via the ALAC-Announce Mailing List.
On 5 June 2012, a second version of the Statement incorporating the comments expressed both by email and on the aforementioned workspace was drafted.
On 6 June 2012, the Chair of the ALAC requested that Staff open a five-day ALAC ratification vote on the Statement. The Chair also requested that the Statement be transmitted to the public comment process, copying the ICANN Staff member responsible for this public comment topic, along with a note saying that the document was currently undergoing ALAC ratification with a vote to start shortly.
