With respect to Liz and Philip, I, like Mikey, understood that we would see
v20 when we finished our meeting in Seoul and vote once that was agreed
But that is not the real issue. The issue is why are we trying to push
through a vote when we agree that we have some minor amendments to finish?
Why don't we get that work done; then vote?
If I am missing something, please advise.

Could I make a suggestion that may take us forward?
The Charter has indeed been through many iterations. I support the
move to a vote now and then hold our elections and then, for the new
willing victims, they take only the very few sections that may need
amending and do that as their first piece of work once they are in
place. For example, we would ONLY look at section 1.x or 3.y that may
need amending in the early new year.
I suspect that the amendments are small and that we ought not get
stuck at the last hurdle.
