So, this arc seems to revolve around the election of the new chairman.
So, who do you think will win?
We know that the 2nd turn will only include the first 16th.
Here are the results: http://www.mangareader.net/hunter-x-hunter/320/15
So the 18 candidates are the following:
Morau (smoking pipe dude from the Insect arc)
Ging (boar, Gon's father)
Tzezguerra (a 1-star hunter from the greed island arc) (see: http://hunterxhunter.wikia.com/wiki/Tsezguerra)
Bisquet (Biscuit, the lil girl that trained Gon and Killua?)
Some names have different spelling, so it's hard to see if we know them or not.
For example, I'm not sure if Bisquet is actually Biscuit (the lil girl that trained Gon and Killua).
I think that since they never got to 95% of the vote, everyone can still be elected.
Meaning that the "final list" I made will change.
When we know who really are the 16 finalists, I'll update it and we will be able to recast our votes.

I will take a wild guess and say the monkey.
In the end, I hope it will be Biscuit. Even if the chances are low, I think she would be a great president because she is strong, a good teacher, charismatic in a weird way, experimented, not evil & nuts: all the required qualities are there
Hard to say really. We hardly know the Zodiac, or many other nominees either. Based on personal favorites, I'd like the winner to be Morau or Biscuit. Both imo worthy candidates. Slightly leaning towards Biscuit being better for the job.
Parriston won't win. Or he could. But he is clearly set as the antagonist here. Ominous figure with seemingly overwhelming advantage. The one to be beaten. Not really sure what to make out him. He seems cool and has support, but seems fishy as hell also. We just have to wait and see who rise to be top contenders. Looking the first round results the ones standing out after Parriston are Cheadl and Ickshonpay. Who is Ickshonpay anyway? Maybe we'll get an introduction later. Or maybe he will be our cat, as refferring to the Zodiac.
As a wild card I throw in Ginta. Hisoka ranked him high, but also he somehow reminds me of the old chubby demon who ended up as the king of Demon World in Yu Yu Hakusho. Togashi has been more or less recycling more or less modified characer types and desings from YYH. And bit by bit I'm starting to like the character more.
But I really hope for Biscuit or Morau to stand up. Or then a totally cool new character.

Actually Gin said his rules isn't there to change the outcome, so I think he already knows Pariston is still going to win. He's just going to force him into some kind of bargain. So my vote is Pariston.
Yeah, Biscuit could do it.
She has the necessary Strength, though she isn't quite on Netero's level either. She also is old enough, experienced enough, utterly unflappable and plain cool.
The Hunter's Association will turn into some kind of gathering of pretty boys akin to Shojo manga if Biscuit won the election.
Pariston might get even more power than he currently does right now. Hisoka would be in good shape too.
I'll throw a wild card and say Teradin. Why? Don't know, seems a simple name in the same line as Netero. And I always think names are half the need to be anything. :P
Also It's far away from the top list which I seriously think they are the most obvious choice and therefore the most unlikely.
I say Pariston wins in the short term (becomes evil corrupt chairman who leads the HxH association down a dark and dreary path until he is defeated) but the eventually good Chairman who will succeed Pariston is...
I think it will be the dragon guy. He is the older one which I would think implies he was the closest one to netero and he does have a presidential feel to him. Dog does not seem very presidential IMO. She is definitely smart but that alone is not enough to lead an organization of the 661 strongest in the world. Ging would win if he wanted to be president IMO though. I also get the impression ging did not show up at the last meeting to get some dirt on pariston. He does not necessarily want pariston to lose but destroying certainly of his victory to make it fair to others would be something he would do IMO.
It seems that everyone is still in the election, since they could still vote for Gon and Killua, etc.
So, until they get 95%, they will not trim the list to the top 16, and everyone will remain available for the election.
So that means that the list we have right now in the poll is not the right one.
Until they get 95%, we won't know who are the 16 "finalists".
I'll update the list when we know for sure, and we will be able to vote again.
Anyway, here's the summary of the vote changes for the current top 16:
Ginta -13 (Gave his votes)
Piyon -11 (Gave her votes)
Kurukku -11 (Gave her votes)
Ging -7 (Gave his votes?)
So, Ginta, Piyon and Kurukku are all manipulated their votes.
But to whom did their vote go? We saw an increase to Botobai and Mizaitom, but not enough compared to the total of votes those three had (11+11+13).
And Ging is also completely gone from the votes, meaning that he is probably manipulating his vote somehow too...
But to whom is he giving his votes?

Maybe they're dispersing the votes so Pariston don't know how they're betting for until they reach the 95%. So that means they probably are betting for someone who is in the top 16 already.
The problem is that they still have not gotten to the top 16 thing, every hunter is still a candidate. Now, I would argue this are the stronger hunters we have seen in the association up until now:
Morel and novu
Based on what we know it would make sense the winner is among them. They are bound to be the more accomplished and respected hunters and the ones bound to get more support. Kaite is strong but right now he literally is a little girl, given that she is an ant there should be at least a few months until she becomes a high level hunter again.
Ging has made it clear he does not want to win so I doubt he will become president. Even if he does he is likely to resign. He wants to succeed the will of the chairman which means he will act to make sure someone who lives up to that wins or at the very least he will support someone who does. In this regard it would make sense he would work to stop pariston from winning as he is a bit of a polar opposite to netero. Ging will most likely work to fairly take away pariston's support base IMO.
Now, the problem is that we know of no candidate that could possibly keep netero's will alive other than ging. The zodiac are not individualistic enough for such a thing IMO. They have common sense to spare so to speak. Based on all of this I have two ideas: Ging wins but runs off and delegates each and every task to the zodiac or botosai wins. Dragon seems the only actual presidential candidate and given his apparent age it would make the most sense he was the closest to netero.
I actually think because there isn't still the 95% o the votes the Zodiacs are currently dispersing the votes on purpose. They made an strategy looking the trend and they're acting according to that. When the 95% is reached, they will focus those votes in the candidate they think it has more chances.
Morel is also a good choice. I want to know how the other top Hunters look like!
I doubt Gin will win, if you ask me.
Well, here's the update between the last poll and the new one.
Seems like pretty much everyone on the top is growing at the same rate.
Parriston 258 (+7)
Cheadle 49 (+3)
Icksonpay 31 (+3)
Botobai 28 (+4)
Mizaitom 27 (+3)
Morau 18 (+5)
Teradin 17 (+7)
Sacchou 15 (+0)
Sanbika 14 (+4)
Bushidora 14 (+4)
Loppe 11 (+2)
Cutie 10 (+0)
Rinne 10 (+2)
Biscuit 10 (+2)
Tsezguerra 9 (+2)
Nov 6 (+0)
Kanzai 6 (+0)

Wow! Quite a development this week!
And we finally got over 95%, which means that now we know the 16 finalists:
I'll ask the Mods to change the poll to only include those 16, so that we can really vote on whose going to win now.
Here's the list of those 16 and their current standing:
Parriston 258 (+0)
Cheadle 57 (+8)
Leorio 55 (+55)
Botobai 31 (+3)
Mizaistom 27 (+0)
Ickshonpay 26 (-5)
Teradin 21 (+4)
Morau 20 (+2)
Saccho 15 (+0)
Biscuit 14 (+4)
Sanbika 13 (-1)
Rinne 13 (+3)
Loupe 12 (+1)
Bushidora 12 (-2)
Cutie 10 (+0)
Ging 8 (+8)
