Yes. Casual vacancies should last only until the next meeting. The
candidate should be eligible for re-election, if he/she wishes to stand,
but nomination/application should go through normal NomCom procedures.

The next elected candidate should receive only the remaining term of the
previous candidate though, instead of the full three-year term. Thus,
not impacting on the staggered terms.
