In an election that took place yesterday with four judges standing for the seat, Easa came first with 84 votes. His closest contender, Drug Court Judge Zubair Mohamed, received 63 votes.
The third and fourth-placed judges, Civil Court Judge Ali Naseer and Chief Magistrate of Faafu Magoodhoo Magistrate Court Abdul Sattar Sulaiman, received 12 and seven votes.
