I disagree, afaik we just directly re-used the code received from through you (iirc). Which in your March elections used this
same system:

Indeed you had a discussion after the results, although I haven't
checked if you later did some change regarding the results.

IMVHO what happened was that we just thought "preferential voting" and
not went into the details, at the Board level and highly likely at the
MC level. I wouldn't say there was specific blame or ill intention in
any of the people involved (you, mc, board).

Let's stick to the process and wait for the MC to come up with a
judgement over the challenge. Meanwhile we can keep discussing ideas for
enhancing the election system/process/method.
