that has been discussed prior the new vote has been set up and apart of
the fact that we want to come to a real result this time also the bylaws
are clear about this:

11.20 For all elections in the General Assembly, candidates shall
require an absolute majority of votes of the participating members. If
no candidate receives an absolute majority a run-off election shall take
place between the two candidates with the greatest number of votes.

The two candidates with the greatest number of votes were Yulja and
Oksana, "None of the above" is not a candidate ;-)
