Discussion for Statute XII.5
I want to discuss point XII.5 from Statutes
(5) "To safeguard the diversity and the international character of the organization only one officer of the same nationality may be elected in the board of PPI. If two nominees of the same nationality would receive the needed votes to be appointed in the board only the nominee first elected in case of sequential elections or the nominee with the most votes in case of a simultaneous election will be appointed. "
I can't agree with such weird definitions like "same nationality" when speaking about diversity in PPI-elections, what will be next? "same religion", "same race"? I can not believe that we are creating such silly "borders" in Pirate Movement
How we can reach diversity with such terms?
What if some party will bring 5 delegates of different nationalities but with same point of view (because they are from same party)
What if different parties (with different point of view) have delegates of same nationality?
Where is diversity here? Don't you feel strange during discussion about delegates nationality for Board elections in Pirate Movement?
I tried to put attention on this point during GA but nobody listen me (probably in a hurry to finish the meeting)
What i suggest: replace definition "same nationality" to "same PPI-member (same Party)" or maybe "same citizenship". Other proposals and opinons are welcome.
of course we can face the problem of "double citizenship" or "double membership", as well as "double nationalities", but it's another question to discuss.
