Mr. Chief Executive:

The Organization of Raw Material Exporting Countries (ORMEC) respectfully requests an explanation for our exclusion from the Executive Council.

The stated purpose of the Executive Council is to coordinate between Arnheim's alliances. ORMEC has just as many member-countries as VIKI, and, as such, we think that we are entitled to a seat at the negotiating table.

ORMEC respectfully yields the floor.
