Where do you read: /announcing of elections/? The statutes explicitly
state out: /Meetings of the General Assembly will be announced at least
five weeks prior to the meeting/. It is about the meeting. Not the
Any criticism you offer at the moment is criticising the GA as a whole.
Please get it straight - as you are being a democrat - that the GA as
the highest organ within PPI is free in its decisions.
If the PP-US is opposing this decision it has to formally call for a
decision by the Court of Arbitration.
This is part of the so called "rule of law". Not the one who shouts
aloud may be right, it might be the mice whispering somewhere in the
corner. CoA will take care of it. That's the way the General Assembly
did decide upon.
If you want to change the way it is, PP-US as any other PP within PPI is
allowed to go for a change of the statutes.
