the final part may read : "The new president will be decided through a lottery."
so may the Zodiac decides this way to choose the president
I'm not that good with japanese, but it seems as if Gin decided they'll pick beans as in lotery to decide.
Gin decides they'll chose the candidates by chance and using a lottery of beans.
I believe the lottery refers to how the VP and Gin resolved their difference, because nobody else was willing to openly support either of them.
My take on the events go like this:
First VP announces his candidacy. This passes without a vote because it actually makes a lot of sense.
Gin announces his candidacy.
VP opposes it and threatens Gin.
Since nobody was willing to openly support either, you got 1 vote for (Gin) and 1 vote against (VP).
Gin and VP draw a name out of a hat to resolve this difference. Gin won. This is the lottery they're talking about.
So now we'll actually have an election that has more than one candidate. It was very possible the ballot could have only had one candidate on it, since the VP was doing your usual: "I wouldn't do that if I were you..." and it seems like only Gin was strong enough to stand up to him, and hence that's a victory for Gin (even though it's pure luck).

There are roughly 600 hunters (100 copies of GI, on average 1 in 6 Hunter have it). 5% of that is 20, so 21 no votes will prevent anybody from winning.
There are 18 Hunters MIA in the last 3 years. However, MIA is not the same thing as dead.
Since officially Netero just 'stepped down', that means people don't know he died, so he is still an eligible Hunter. He clearly can never attend.
Gon is currently unable to vote.
Killua probably won't vote either until Gon's restored.
That's exactly 21 people, enough to prevent anyone from winning. 19 of those guys cannot possibly vote, but unless the VP come out and say "Yeah those guys are dead because I killed them", they'd have to be perpetual no shows.
So I wonder if Killua or Gon ends up with the deciding vote?
rail-tracer that was an amazing compilation they remind me of the last supper (That's how its said in english, right?) somehow.
So is the guy with the (presumely) blond hair and suit and the big smile the vice chairman?
He looks like a cheery fellow...which means he's PURE EVIL.
People are saying the "rat" is the Vice Chairman but which is the rat? Since it looks like all the Zodiac at the end of 318 were
at the table and only the young man in the suit wasn't at 318 and was late to the table (it appears) that he's the Vice Chairman.
Though I was expecting him to be old and decrepit. Like Emperor Palpatine. "Join the Dark Side of the Hunter Association, Gon!"
I hope Ging loses the election and the Vice Chairman wins just so he can corrupt the Hunter Association and cause havoc.
Told you that the dragon is the one with the flames, but damn that's one ugly bunch. Interestingly enough Gin is there which should probably mean that these are the top 12 or 12 of the strongest. It seems like the pig is the one missing, right?
VP is the Rat, who is the missing member of the Zodiac from part 318. The VP is both the VP of Hunter's Association and a member of the Zodiac.
It's funny how the Rat is the most beautiful of them all when it's usually the one who has the rat as a symbol that's the ugliest. The VP seem to be motivated but more or less rotten. Someone said that his look of plain happiness indicates his pure evilness and I agree. This guy could be the grimmest out there, the true psychopath.
Now I'm interested in their powers and if they are any match against the Phantom Troupe.

The VP doesn't hide the fact he's evil. He already told Gin something might happen to your son if you ran for the president.
One of the Zodiac said 18 Hunters went MIA in the 3 years that the VP became the VP of Hunter's Association, so it's rather obvious who was behind that.
I don't think the Zodiac necessarily have to be super good at fighitng, but you can't compare the Spiders to these guys. Spiders are at best comparable to a terrorist organization. The Zodiac can influence the Hunter's Association, an organization that humanity depends on in a fight for its survival (i.e. versus Meryem). I don't think the VP has to be powerful in combat, but there's no doubt his influence/pull is far beyond any individual we've seen so far in HXH. We know Gin's influence is compareable to the head of a nation but the VP is clearly above him in influence.

Any one can find any Scanlations or Raw ?!!
Just so you guys know, Rat and Boar are the exact beginning and end of the Chinese Cycle. These animals refer to a tale where Budha invited all of them to a party and the order is about who came sooner than who and why.
