Poor Dante De Gori.... no doubt just missed out by a whisker.

Another narcist with inflated opinion of oneself and obsessive self promotion personality got the role he craved for.
This was on the cards anyways. The way he would make FSC policy annoucement using his personal LinkedIn handle and then share the same post using official FSC linekdin account, it was clearly evident he was more interested in further his own personal cause than of his constituents.

Mark my word this one is a politician in making.
