Ox asks people to vote for Chidol
Chidol asks people to vote for Leorio
Leorio says if he becomes Chairman he'll put all the Hunter's Association resources into saving Gon.
Pariston has yet to make his speech.
When Nanika is asleep, this is the only time Alluka is awake.
Aside: vote tally shows Leorio + Ox + Chidol together has more votes for Pariston.

It would be funny if Gon after being healed convinces all those waiting and worrying about him to vote for Leorio and that small group of 10 odd Hunters was the deciding factor in one of the rounds between the final 2 candidates.
Chidol says that Pariston is no longer smiling.
I think a lot of us - or perhaps everyone saw this turn of events coming just didn't expect it to be so soon - with Cheadle giving her votes to Leorio. It makes more sense as a counter attack against Pariston who doesn't know HOW to manipulate Leorio the way he does the other Zodiacs. As evidenced by Cheadle recounting his acts of impulse that makes controlling him all the more difficult and of course with his speech on only thinking of how to save Gon pretty much moves people with his sincerity - a lack of desire for power and far easier to relate to the masses. Simply put this makes the deadlock scenario while it will occur happen much sooner than what Pariston would've wanted since there are far more numerous certain voters than ambiguous ones.
It seems like pariston is not quite smiling anymore lol. I guess this means that cheadle and co finally did something he did not quite expect and thus is uncertain of what to do next. According to ging pariston was planning on delaying the election however if the zodiac makes it so that leorio has an actual chance of winning then such a move might be risky. In turn, if he makes it so that he wins then basically won't be able to do whatever he initially planned on doing. So, should he take the safe road and win the election while changing his plans or should he win or lose all and delay the election? I think cheadle would foresee that pariston would go for the win and be ready for such a move. She must be planning to win the election within the next few rounds however that would imply she is already planning on how to use the ants and how to make a few temp voters vote for leorio.
There is always going to be a victor the moment Chidol forced everyone to be locked in the room and no one can leave until it's done. Presumably Pariston's plan was just have some guys either not vote with some bogus excuses, but now that everyone's locked in the same room you can't get away with excuses like that more than once. Pretty soon people's going to ask 'who exactly are those 5% who somehow forgot to vote while we're all in the exact same room?'
The problem is that if it's Chidol versus Pariston, presumably Pariston already knows Chidol's weakness so even if it comes down to just those two, he probably has a plan even though it seems like Chidol should have a majority by the fact that more people hate Pariston than those who like him. Of course, Pariston knows nothing about Leorio, so he could not have possibly have a plan to deal with him ahead of time. That's why he's no longer smiling since it's no longer going according to his plan.
I guess that within context leorio is in many ways much like ging or pariston. leorio does not actually care about winning or losing. Adding the fact that pariston knows little of leorio we have that pariston might find himself in a situation which cannot be predicted nor controlled by him. Taking this into consideration it is plausible that cheadle plans on making pariston predictable. Pariston does not think about winning or losing however this works in consideration that he knows he is going to win and that he is able to predict what everyone else is doing. If leorio indeed gets the votes from the remaining candidates he might actually be trouble. Now, perhaps forcing pariston from not caring to wanting to win cheadle hopes to catch him doing something less than legal. However such a thing would require the move to be predicted several moves ahead at least.
I think the biggest issue here is that the little that Pariston knows Leorio, will be trouble for him. He knows that He's a deep friend of Gon, son of Ging. He knows his technique and and that He's a doctor. It screams EVERYWHERE altruism. Something I feel it's not so much His own philosophy xD
