The Colombian Government appreciates the opportunity to comment on Draft
new ICANN Bylaws.

By the time the U.S. National Telecommunications and Information
Administration (NTIA) announced its intent to transition its stewardship of
the IANA functions to the global multistakeholder community on March 2014,
Colombia was participating as a member of the Government Advisory Committee
(GAC). Through the last couple of years, we had been involved on this
unprecedented effort from the ICANN community in developing a sound IANA
stewardship transition proposal that meet NTIA requirements.

Having reviewed sections and paragraphs of the Draft new ICANN Bylaws
related to our specific government role as part of the GAC as well as the
empowerment community, we have found this Draft reflects the spirit and
understanding of what we had witnessed through this transition process
proposals. We acknowledge different views have been submitted on this
regard.  Therefore, we understand fine tuning of the Draft new ICANN bylaws
may be required before it is implemented and into effect in the event NTIA
approves of the IANA Stewardship Transition Proposal and the IANA Functions
Contract expires. At this stage, we expect some flexibility would be
required to ensure that the transition process will take place on September

Finally, we reiterate our support to the ICANN Accountability Proposal and
to the unique opportunity represented by the IANA Stewardship Transition
