Geo gTLD bidders propose new constituency

Applicants for geographic gTLDs voted unanimously to form a new ICANN constituency last week.

According to minutes of a meeting hosted by .london applicant London & Partners in London last Thursday, 20 applicants voted in favor of a constituency and nobody voted for the alternatives.

Not every geo was in attendance, however. Twenty votes represents less than a third of the overall geographic gTLD applicant base.

A new constituency would likely join registries and registrars in the Contracted Parties House of the Generic Name Supporting Organization.

A constituency for dot-brand applicants, the Brand Registry Group, is also currently being formed.
