 Queridos miembros de LACRALO, 

 Espero que podamos tener una retroalimentación razonable de todos los miembros de la 
 Opinión del Defensor del Pueblo, en particular sus recomendaciones finales 

  "En este caso soy consciente de que no es la crítica de la 
 decisión de celebrar una encuesta, con un número teniendo en cuenta que la lanza Hinds 
 debe haber sido seleccionados por el hecho de ser el único candidato, sin 
 la necesidad de una encuesta. Mirando hacia el futuro, sería útil tener un 
 opinión de consenso sobre si las normas deben modificarse para prever 
 esto específicamente. Pero en una situación en la que ha habido un voto 
 en contra de un candidato, el proceso justo sería volver a ejecutar la elección, 
 y esa es mi recomendación ".
