Note about voting system
Five candidates stood for election. The supplementary voting system was used and no candidate received more than 50% of the vote, so candidates apart from those in first and second place were eliminated.
The ballot papers showing a first preference for the eliminated candidates were checked for their second preference. Any second preference votes for the two remaining candidates were then added to the candidates’ first preference votes and the candidate with the most votes won.
