I think this is an important point. When few General  Secretaries are
given authority to elect the President, horse trading might  be done by
parties in the General Council. In parliamentary democracy  horse
trading is a common problem. 
But if large number of people are  electing the President, horse
trading becomes almost impossible. That means  if 30,000 members are
electing the president, culprits can't contact and  bribe such large
number of voters. Also horse trading on such a large scale  can not
remain secrete. 
But when few GC members are electing, then  there is much possibility
of horse trading. I have sometimes seen officers  serving their own
purpose through the TS. And current attempts by some  members to hijack
the TS also tells us that there is great danger to the TS  from these
Therefore it is extremely important that the  President of the TS be
elected by popular voting i.e. voting by all 30,000  or so TS members.
