NMB48 fan voting for Yoshida Akari's return

Some of you might remember that 2 months ago, NMB48 held a voting for the return of Shimada Rena and Matsuda Shiori from suspension. The two were accepted back into NMB on the first voting.

Today it was announced at an event that the final suspended member Yoshida Akari will go through the same fan voting.

Just like the previous voting process, she will have to get more than 50% approved votes before she can re-enter NMB. If she gets less than that, the voting will repeat until she gets accepted. The voting period will be from January 15th to January 21st, and the results of the voting will be announced during the Team N [Seishun Girls] stage show on January 24th.

I wonder what took them so long to do the voting for Akarin? Some people have speculated that she was busy with studies and I hope that's just the case. Since the voting will just get repeated if she fails, I want this voting over and done with as soon as possible.

A comment from Miss Moonlight
"I was at the event today when they announced the news about Akarin and fan reaction was very positive, lots of claps, screams etc. I am pretty sure fans will vote her back (even if not, they will repeat the voting until fans allow it). I already put my vote in for her."
