Key requirement is the autonomy of the organization emphasized the chairman.
The chairman invited Mr. Katundu to present the action plan.
But before Mr. Katundu could take the floor, the two TESPOK representatives (Mr. Bell and Mr. Brian) took the floor and expressed the need to organize a public forum where the Internet community will chart the way forward.
The two representatives explained that though they attend on behalf of TESPOK, most of the time, they don’t report back whatever is discussed and agreed upon during the ccTLD meetings.
It is at this point when the chairman suspended the action plan and asked members to deliberate on the proposed public forum.
