In the event of a tie between two nations in a runoff election, the final decision shall go to the Council of Nine. Each Council member shall cast a vote for one of the two candidates. Whichever candidate attains a majority vote in the Council of Nine shall be declared the winner of the election."
This only applies in the event of a 2nd tie after a runoff election. Even though it's highly unlikely, it's still something we need to consider.
- The members of the Council to cast ballots in such a vote shall be those who are serving on the Council immediately after the conclusion of the runoff (Thus, senators already elected in a race other than the tied runoff shall cast a ballot, but delegates-elect shall not, etc.). - If a sitting councilmember is one of the candidates in the tied runoff, he or she shall not be able to cast a ballot. - In the case of a tie in the Council, the Chief Executive shall decide the next Senator from the two candidates.
