Congratulations to ICANN on this proposal.

As an applicant with a new GTLD from Africa region, and with one single 
application, I submit the following comment.

 
The draw as it has been designed, has an element of unfairness in it. An 
applicant such as myself, with only one application, must go to
the draw with applicants that have multiple applications, in some cases in the 
hundreds. 

 I recommend ICANN consider reformulating the draw, so that the initial lineup 
for evaluation after the draw includes one application per applicant, thus 
ensuring that applicants with multiple applications do not have an unfair 
advantage over those with single applications.

Respectfully submitted.
