CSCG endorsed candidates for the IGF MAG 2018

Nov 8, 2017

Dear IGF Secretariat,

Members of the Civil Society Coordination Group (CSCG) have submitted their
nominations for the IGF MAG 2018, seeking our endorsement. To that effect,
a Nomcom was formed, comprised of members from the Just Net Coalition
(JNC), Association for Progressive Communications (APC), Best Bits, ICANN’s
NCSG and the IGC to receive, evaluate and select the candidates to be
endorsed by the CSCG.

After an open process, we received up to 12 nominations and have selected 6
of them to be considered as our primary endorsed candidates, plus 2
candidates to be considered as alternates, in the event UNDESA would like
to consider names outside of the 6 primary ones.

As co-facilitator of the Civil Society Coordination Group (CSCG), I have
submitted eight nominations for the IGF MAG 2018 renewal. We think these
candidates have the potential to serve on behalf of civil society in the
next MAG and are in the position to defend civil society positions:

Primary nominations:

1. Rafik Dammark (Male, AFR)
2. Valentina Pellizer (Female, EE)
3. Jeremy Malcolm (Male, WEOG)
4. Tope Ogundipe (Female, AFR)
5. Kemly Camacho (Female, LAC)
6.  Norbert Bollow (Male, WEOG)

Reserve nominations, in case IGF wishes to consider additional candidates
from civil society:

7.      Avis Momeni (Male, AFR)
8.      Claudio Lucena (Male, LAC)

Since your form does not allow CSCG to list itself as an international
organization not belonging to any UN regional group, I have specified the
regional group of each of the candidates as the regional group of the

We would appreciate to hear back from you when the process is concluded.

Please do let us know if you have any questions.

On behalf of the CSCG NomCom 11,

Arsene Tungali, Chair
