The number of first preferences received by each candidate was as follows:

The election was conducted under the Single Transferable Vote, which meant that votes were redistributed between candidates to come up with the final result. In the 9th round of voting the final place, after Christophe was elected, was between Nataliia (16.09) and Siska (9.91).
