More detailed presentations and discussions will continue in the January 2005 meeting. It is also expected that elimination voting will begin. During elimination voting each voter will register their support for only one candidate and the proposal with the lowest level of support will be eliminated.
The cycle of presentation, discussion and voting will continue until there remains only one candidate. The remaining candidate must then achieve ratification where support from at least 75% of voting members is obtained.
