[arin-ppml] Board Election Petition underway

I was rejected for an Advisory Council candidacy even though I was a candidate in the past and am a policy author in multiple registries.
Another broker was likewise rejected.
There are 7 AC openings, only 10 candidates, but I was rejected.
I know another broker who was, like me, solicited to run but then denied a candidacy.
The NomCom is comprised of four insiders, two volunteers, and operates in the dark.
Not saying this is the case, but very few likeminded individuals on the AC/Board can effectively capture these via NomCom filtering.
A dangerous thing for Internet governance in the context of Afrinic. I don't want the governments of the world taking over from the amateurs.
But if we continue to act amateurish...

Has ARIN disclosed anything about why the NomCom chose to exclude two obviously-qualified candidates from the ballot when they didn’t yet have 2 candidates per open seat, and the 3 candidates they did include are all less well-known to the community than both the ones they excluded?
I can hypothesize some possible reasons, but none of them would reflect well on the NomCom, so I am reluctant to do so without learning their stated reason(s).
