    Actually, I was not asking why or how this is done.  I was stating
the conflict behind this.  In short, nominating more than one person for
the chair is self-contraction.  This violates the purpose of nomination,
and should not happen.

    And also, should we add a rule of nomination that one person can
only nominate one candidate?  This rule is most common in all kinds of
elections.
