The "bottom half" depends somehow on the number of candidates.

| 18 zlin
What is the bottom half?
1-9 is the first half, and 10-18 the second.
Or did you already remove rank 18?
| * Whenever a member of the Council loses their position (the reason is
| irrelevant; they could be booted for slacking or they resign or ...), then
| the next person in line from the previous Council election is offered the
| position. If they decline, it is offered to the next person in line, and so
| forth. If they accept and the current Council unanimously accepts the new
| person, they get the position with a 'reduced' term such that the yearly
| elections still elect a full group. If the Council does not accept that
| person, then a new election is held to choose a new member.
So your options are:
- Change the rules once again. Because you can.
- Follow the rules.
