I agree that the voting was democratic and a decision was made by the
votes of the majority in FESCo.

However I do not agree that the discussion here is completely
unhelpful. It shows some of us directly the bad decision(s) we made
when we cast our votes in FESCo elections, so that we don't make the
same mistake(s) again. I, for one, will be more careful to give my
vote to those who are capable of performing (at least basic) reasoning
and who are constructive in resolving conflicts. It really doesn't
matter for me that much which direction they take, whether they are
thinking my way or not. I just want to see my representatives doing
their homework.
