What part of "immediate vote" isn't clear? All this does is determine
whether the decision of the DPL is put on hold or stands for the
course of the discussion/resolution period.

Even if Manoj were to delegate the running of this vote to another
developer,[1] that developer would have to conduct an immediate vote
as well.

possibility of this kind of accusation, but it's not like running the
vote has any special power in this regards; everything is pretty well
spelled out by the constitution. [This is why jurists recuse
themselves, of course... not that they aren't capable of being even
handed, but just to preserve the appearance of the same.]
