There were 5 questions and each candidate responded to the same questions. In a few cases the questions did not apply to a given cadidate for their position.
Candidate were given 1 minute to introduce themselves, then 2 minutes for each question and then 1 minute for closing words. The order of cadidates was by drawn lots and after question #2 lots were drawn again.
