    Why such a short deadline, not even a week ? Article dated May 13th, 2024, 3.10 pm and deadline May 17th, 2024. The process could have been started since the end of the 2023 tourism year in terms of information dissemination, thus enabling folks to make ” mental notes ” of those whom they would like to nominate. By this time they would have a relatively fair idea of who would fit the various categories. Just saying.
