.政务 is a Hans Chinese IDN Community Priority Application, translated as "government affairs", being proposed in ICANN's New gTLD Program. The applicant is China Organizational Name Administration Center. The proposed application succeeded and was delegated to the Root Zone on 17 December, 2013.
The application was issued a GAC Early Warning from Chinese Taipei (Taiwan). The warning system is noted as a strong recommendation on behalf of national governments to the ICANN Board that a given TLD application should be denied as it stands. Applicants are encouraged to work with objecting GAC members.
The warning states that the string is confusingly similar to existing government related TLDs and is not adequately restricted to official government entities, thereby creating the potential for misrepresentation as a government entity on the Internet.
The applicant subsequently submitted Public Interest Commitments (PIC), noting its intention to add binding amendments based off of its application details and its response to the GAC Early Warning.
