Apologies, I had forgotten about the 1-year vs 2-year term issue. Was the
selection of 1-year terms done because we wanted one-year terms, or because
we wanted the charter to be finalized before we elected people to two-year
Anyway, if we are adopting 1-year terms, I think it adds to the appeal of
the replacement system, because this constituency is not cohesive enough to
be having meaningful elections more than once a year.
