That is my belief as well, but I am of course biased in this. So as
not to delay things further, the elections will proceed as planned.
You are of course welcome to open a debate on this (as you have done),

and hold a new election.
But before that can be discussed, I think you'll have to say *how* you
think the rules should be published "more clearly".
