This is against the most basic rule of democracy.
Well, “democracy” is relative – after all, even North Korea calls itself the “Democratic People’s Republic of Korea” ;-)
In addition to the mistake that 6 people must have been chosen (thanks for the quick correction!), it is questionable what minimum information some candidates provided for their election positions. A few sentences about themself and no vision of how to get the IVRPA back on track? No link to the profiles of the candidates seems unusual and does not provide confidence from my point of view.
Nethertheless I would be grateful if the IVRPA gets a powerful trusted and motivated board and gained the relevance it had 5 years ago.
