I don't like disclosing private communications but in this case I feel it's

The Current PTL contacted the Election officials after the nomination period
closed and was instructed to reach out to the TC and community.

Given he's the only candidate I think it's reasonable to assume he'll become
the PTL in ~3 days  :)

So cards on the table, I'm interested in taking on the role.  I didn't nominate
because I thought that might be a little complex given I'm also acting as an
election official.

Clearly[1] the TC can select a candidate, whomever that is I'm confident Stable
Maintenance will continue to build momentum.
