Thanks Pedro for taking the initiative to distribute the election results on

Also this is a land mark in that it is the first time ever that the election
results (International or National) was broadcast over Internet as against
the normal method of publishing it in the national TS magazines several
weeks after the results are announced, by which time it has already become
old news.

I think that it would be a good idea for the International Secretary to put
out a news release to news media and all Internet media so that information
can be disseminated directly and very quickly without going thru the proper
channel. Even important court decisions are released in this manner in the
United States for the past several years.

Thanks again.
