It's like a game of volleyball, ROTATE, and the same people move around. Of course, the top two are always the ones not up for re-election so the others can appear less responsible if something controversial needs to be enacted on an orchestrated 3-2 vote, giving the 2 most vulnerable members something they can point to.
