        Thanks for the question Wolf. 

        The election procedure is the one you describe.

        There is a vote with two options: for, or against, the sole candidate.

        If, after that vote, candidate has the required majority, candidate 

        If, after that vote, candidate has the highest number of votes (against 
"not-candidate") but does not have the required majority, there is a 2nd round 
where the voting choice becomes candidate, or abstain.

        I know this sounds redundant, but we have to follow the election 
procedure regardless of whether there are two candidates, or one.

        So in short: two rounds planned, unless outright win in first round.

        Hope this helps,

                There's 1 question regarding the election procedure: are we 
going to proceed in 1 voting round or potentially in 2?
                According to the draft procedures the council accepted to 
follow a first ballot should be taken between alternative candidates and a 
potential 2nd one between the candidate with the highest score and the "non of 
the above (nota)" option. Since we've just 1 candidate for the Council Chair 
the 2nd voting round seems to be the 1st - and only - one.
                Is this the common understanding?
                Kind regards
