NPOC comment on the NCSG IFRC/IOC comments
For several weeks, at various times, the NCSG position on the IFRC/IOC resolution was discussed in the NCSG Policy Committee list. NPOC has three members on this committee, 2 appointed representatives and the chair of the NPOC, which I beleive is Alain himself. This committee gave its approval to the NCSG comments per the NCSG Charter. NPOC could have objected at any point in that process. They did not. The Chair of the NCSG Policy Committee declared the decision of the Policy Committee, which according to charter does not need to be unanimous, though in this case it apparently was. I do not know what the NPOC did internally in its discussions, or whether the representatives of the NPOC on the NCSG Policy Committee where tracking this with their members internal structures, but to now say that you were excluded from the decision is just not an accurate reflection of the case within the NCSG or the NCSG Policy Committee. The NCSG postion listed in the document is the NCSG position as developed in its Policy Committee according to its charter.
