Can I suggest that people mail privately those they'd like to see
stand, until the person posts a statement saying they will or won't ?
That will enable people to put themselves forward without feeling they
might not have the support for it.
I don't intend to stand unless there is significant demand for it
(email me) or I don't hear about another candidate I could give my
support to by the end of the nomination period.
