Yes, it will really work.  5.2.8 would say "The Project Leader serves
for one year from their election." which would still be true.

That would be a very odd reading.  The end of *voting* is not
necessarily the election date - it hasn't been for years. See

I feel this amendment would approve current (good IMO) practice,
allowing the handover period.

Hope that explains,
