Net body changes leadership rules

Posted on 02 November 2002 by Demian Turner

The group that co-ordinates the internet has approved controversial changes to the way it chooses its leadership.

At a meeting in Shanghai, Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, (Icann), voted to abandon online elections for half of its directors.

The changes are designed to improve the efficiency of Icann, which is responsible for making key decisions that affect everything from how websites are named to how e-mail is sent.

But critics say the decision will make the body less accountable to the world’s 550 million internet users.
