that could be several quite distinct questions:

1. assuming that the "aye" vote prevails, in what quarter will the 
iso3166/ma issue the relevant update, allocating a code point to the new 
political jurisdiction?

2. assuming the iso3166/ma issues the relevant update and code point, 
when will the new political jurisdiction designate a registry operator?

3. assuming new political jurisdiction designates a registry operator, 
when will the root zone publisher delegate the code point to the 
operator designated by the new political jurisdiction?

4. assuming the root zone publisher delegates the code point to the 
operator, when will the operator "go live", and what, if any, "stages 
of" or "restrictions on" access will the operator exercise subsequent to 
that point in time?

your milage may vary, of course.
