MEDMA had allowed advance voting by e-mail. 6 more votes were collected this way (Calucem, Conmix, Eirich, Evonik, Imerys and Wacker Chemie). Both candidates were elected with ten votes and two abstentions.

Once elected, Laith stated that he will act as a neutral, unbiased, yet knowledgeable President.

Regarding regions outside the IUAE, Saudi Arabia and Egypt were mentioned as the most important.
