I respect your opinion. I invite everyone to give his opinion on this and
have an open minded discussion.

My 2 cents:
I certainly think it should be possible. In my opinion you are elected as a
TU, and not a TU trainee. See it in this way.
If you get a new job it is also possible for you to propose changes. At your
proposals should be looked upon in greater care (however it is always
important to look at it with care), but you are allowed to propose things.
That is what in my opinion is exactly what should happen. We have a voting
mechanism, every TU is allowed to vote (actually I think you should vote)
yes, no, or abstain. So if you think someone should not make a good new TU,
you should vote NO. It is that easy.

Like you say, you learn by doing things. Sponsoring someone is also doing
