Rinalia Abdul Rahim, At-Large Advisory Committee (ALAC) member from the Asian, Australasian and Pacific Islands Regional At-Large Organization (APRALO) and member of the ALAC Executive Committee, composed an initial draft of this Statement [PDF, 434 KB] after discussion of the topic within At-Large and the At-Large IDN Working Group.
On 5 July 2012, this Statement was posted on the At-Large IDN Prioritization in the New gTLD Program Targeted at the ICANN Board Workspace.
On that same day, Olivier Crépin-Leblond, Chair of the ALAC, requested ICANN Policy Staff in support of ALAC to send a call for comments on the draft Statement to all At-Large members via the ALAC-Announce Mailing List.
On 18 July 2012, a version incorporating the comments received was posted and the Chair of the ALAC requested that Staff open a five-day ALAC ratification on the Statement.
On 30 July 2012, Staff confirmed that the online vote resulted in the ALAC endorsing the Statement with 14 votes in favor, 0 votes against, and 1 abstention. You may review the result independently under:
The ALAC Chair then transmitted this Statement to the Chair of the ICANN Board, with a copy sent to the ICANN Board Secretary.
