Actually, upon closer inspection, I see now that A.6 is actually not
completely accurate for this case. It has this:

8. If there are no defeats within the Schwartz set, then the winner is
   chosen from the options in the Schwartz set. If there is only one such
   option, it is the winner. If there are multiple options, the elector with
   the casting vote chooses which of those options wins.

We need to skip that in case of soc-ctte elections. The list that I
mentioned previously would be referred to as a 'Schwartz set', if I get this

     2. That which causes joy or happiness.
