Hello Seun,

In my understanding as a MAG member, there are UN protocols that goes in
the selection of a IGF host country and as much as i no, UN does the

In any case, France has confirmed their interest but there is also other
interested party that is yet to confirmed. I can understand the
frustrations of the community and its only fair we give the MAG chair and
the secretariat a little more time to conclude and officially announce the
host country. It has being tough getting a host country this year.
