On behalf of the election facilitators I would like to let you know the
results of the Affiliate Selected Board Seats election.
The candidates who won the election are Patricio Lorente and Frieda
Brioschi, and therefore the movement affiliates recommend the Board
There were 27 votes cast by movement affiliates, and the results at each
stage of the count (under the STV system) were as follows.
Sums: Patricio Lorente (15.50); Alice Wiegand (5.50); Frieda
Brioschi(5.00); Anders Wennersten (1.00)
Sums: Frieda (8.73); Alice (6.74); Anders (1.53)
Sums: Frieda (9.26); Alice (7.74)
Sums: Frieda (17.00)
The 0.5 votes in the first round occur because some affiliates put two
candidates as 1st preference: this was treated as a half-vote for each
The election result was counted independently by two of the facilitators,
one using a script and the other using pen-and-paper, to verify one
Do let us know if you have any further questions regarding the process.
I would like to thank all the candidates and everyone who participated in
the selection process, and particularly Alice Wiegand for her two years of
service on the WMF Board.
on behalf of James Hare, Lorenzo Losa and Chris Keating, election
