Chinese term or phrase:等额选举
Dear colleagues: I encountered another tern, 等额选举, it is used in the following sentence. 由于Zhang 辞去主任候选人资格，主任职位其他初步候选人表示不参加竞选，故主任实行等额选举。What should be proper translation? many thanks!
Explanation: I checked several editions of English-Chinese and Chinese-English Dictionary of Law for "等额选举":
"等额选举" usually means "eagual-number election between nominees and the elected-to-be" and "等额选举" can be "single-candidate election".
Both meanings are listed for "等额选举".
Here, in your situation, I would use "single-candidate election".
