Yes and no. Only one of the 2 available seats my be occupied by a
employee, to stay within the 40% rule. However, both seats could be
by community members that are not SUSE employees. Thus, you are not
"really splitting" your vote.
To further clarify, the rule is for 40% of ANY company. So, SUSE
technically shouldn't be singled out here. If say, for example, we
have three candidates who are employed by the ABC Company, then only two
of them could be on the Board if all three won an election.
And that 40% is ONLY for elected members of the Board. The chairman of
the board is not beholden to that rule. He or she is appointed by SUSE.
So you could have two (40%) elected board members PLUS 1 appointed board
member from SUSE.
So, it would be meaningless to set up a voting procedure where you vote
for one employee and one non-employee because theoretically everybody is
As a voter, you may vote for as many candidates from the same company as
you wish (up to the number of votes you are allowed.) What matters is
the overall count of votes from the entire electorate.
Hope that helps,
