  7. If no one person receives a simple majority of votes cast, and if there are three or more candidates, the top two candidates will have a run off. The others shall be dropped. This procedure is repeated until a person receives a simple majority (50%+1) of votes.
  8. If there are two candidates left and neither receives a simple majority, another ballot is cast. If neither has the simple majority, a simple majority of the Executive Body, by secret discussion and ballot, will decide who will be the executive.
