The 4th Senbatsu General Election wrapped up just an hour ago, and the positions for AKB48's 27th Single, releasing on August 29th, are final. Let's take a look on the rankings. Some positions were quite obvious before the event even took place, while many more were quite unexpected, with members dropping as much as 30 ranks! Member positions are arranged in ascending order.
As expected, without Acchan in the competition there wasn't anyone that could stand up against the might of Yuko. Although there is one thing I'm curious about. Compared to last year's votes, Yuko's votes decreased by 20k. Is it because that since Acchan wasn't participating, there wasn't much of a need to mass vote? Well whatever the reason, Yuko has taken back the center position, the 2nd time for her. Much congratulations to her.
