No vote

Sweden was unable to vote because of irregularities which gives SIS no means to further participate in the process.
Hungary, no vote.


Note: updated with the official ISO results except in the not yet clear "Cuban case" and the Lybian vote, finally submitted by post mail, because they decided not to accept the ISO imposition to send the comments in a deprecated, exclusive and proprietary ".doc" format:

Note about "Lybian case": Unfortunatelly it seems that ISO is the first one not following its own standards: Lybia tried to submit its comments in ISO 19500-1:2005 (PDF/A) and ISO 26300 (OpenDocument), but they were not accepted by ISO itself.
