No Way! Where in council election rules you found that? That's absolutely 
*illegal* to introduce such new rule on a mere "we do it like that now" basis, 
without any referendum or anything. Maemo Council Election Rules are pretty 
unambiguous and clear about this.

See above. No Way. Council doesn't take any orders from anybody except from 
community via referendum (or request for referendum which obviously requires 
some action as well) and implicitly via HiFo declaring "big red button" re-
election of *both* entities (something that also been implemented for a reason 
to allow both entities mutually controlling each other, been urgently needed 
already when HiFo turned mad and council had to declare re-elections of both 
entities, and now this important tool is silently dropped)

Since all this mess-up happening to community - all the damage to the 
carefully designed and adjusted proven-to-work democratic rules introduced by 
two persons in HiFo rushing over all those rules in an ignorant and sloppy 
way, and all this happily supported by majority of new council - isn't 
compliant with my moral codex of adhering to the rules that I am liable to as 
a council member and about being honest to the community who elected me, I'm 
announcing my general veto to tall this and - due to the fact this isn't 
considered any relevant - will refrain from any further active participation 
in such rogue activity. Maemo at large finally reached a state where I don't 
want to participate any longer.

Best Regards
