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
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.
