Only 19 of 90 Comments Support ICANN Accountability Proposal Overall

Contrary to recent representations and "spin"(pdf) from the ICANN CCWG-Accountability co-Chairs, the second public comment period resulted in less than a majority, and much less than a consensus of community support and endorsement overall, for the most recent CCWG proposal, with most comments raising questions and concerns--see excerpts below from the full pdf slide presentation which can be found as an attachment on the CCWG mail list here: http://mm.icann.org/pipermail/accountability-cross-community/2015-September/005493.html--

All comments may be read here: http://forum.icann.org/lists/comments-ccwg-accountability-03aug15/. The CCWG-Accountability group is scheduled to meet with the ICANN Board of Directors this coming Friday and Saturday, September 25-26, in Los Angeles.

The CCWG-Accountability process dealing with enhancing ICANN accountability is one part of the NTIA requirements for the IANA Stewardship Transition, the other part being the ICG process now also underway.
