The Election Chair, Anju Mangal, advised the APNIC EC Chair that the announcement of the election results should be deferred due to potential anomalies with the voting process. Ms Mangal was not confident, as the Election Chair, that the election results accurately represented the votes of the community.

The election result will be provided once it is confirmed that the election process was conducted according to the election procedures.

Update: 11 October 2022

APNIC conducted an analysis of the community elections and concluded that:

  • No anomalies were found in election processes or voting that would impact the results of the APNIC 54 elections. The election results as originally received from the election system are therefore considered to be valid.
