                              (b)    declare, from any remaining runners up in the most recent election held for the category of the former member, the runner up with the highest number of votes who wishes to fill the vacancy and still meets the eligibility requirements to be a candidate to be elected, or

(4)  If the Alberta Insurance Council declares a runner up to be elected under this section to fill a vacancy, the term of the runner up is the remainder of the former member’s term.

(5)  If, as a result of conducting an election under this section to fill a vacancy, the Alberta Insurance Council declares an individual to be elected and the declaration occurs with more than 187 days remaining in the term of the former member, the term of the individual is the remainder of the former member’s term.
