I noticed that the Western region with 88000 members saw a 44% turnout for 11 seats, thereby needing 3230 votes(total of first preference and others). This represents merely 3.7% of the total members, or 6.5% of members in practice! Imagine the power of CAs in industry, if they turnout to elect, even taking the 40% turnout, they can combine and ensure that around 5-6 members of their choice are elected from WIRC.
Also, if we notice the votes secured by the 11 finally elected members, we notice that 6 members obtained merely between 50%-65% of the required votes on the first ballot, with remaining votes via 2nd/other preferences. Therefore, there is still hope for those who marshall above 1600 votes on the first preference ballot.
