I think yes, if the council regarding GLEP39 thinks A, but the dev
population B, then it is unlikely the council will vote for B.  However,
the dev population should vote for other council members that do support
B for the next term in that case.

You have all rights of course to try and persuade the council members to
change their minds and vote for B.  Probably good argumentation will
help there.
