Cheadle asks Ging for advice to win the election
Cheadle speaks with Ging and asks him if he's abandoning both the election and his son, then asks for his advice on how to win. He gives his predictions and tells her it will be difficult to defeat Pariston in the election because Pariston knows how she thinks, and he neither wants to win nor lose — only prolong the election. Ging also informs Cheadle that Pariston secretly sent 100 Hunter Association airships to recover 5000 cocoons from the chimera ants, which will all have Nen abilities when they hatch.
The Hunter Association votes for a new Chairman
The four remaining candidates give speeches before the 8th vote for the next Hunter Association Chairman. Currently in fourth place, Mizaistom asks all of his supporters to vote for Cheadle, who is in third place. Cheadle then asks her supporters to vote for Leorio, who is currently in second place.
Leorio says he's only interested in saving the life of his friend, Gon, and he wants to select a new chairman as quickly as possible. Leorio has no interest in being the next chairman, but his candid remarks elicit a huge applause from the audience.
Pariston is the front-runner, and he says Mizaistom is the only candidate qualified to be Chairman. Then, the association votes for the 8th time.
