以下が国際本部からの本件に関する説明です。
Here’s the explanation of Toastmasters International about this issue.

The candidate for this possible new division should be notified that there is a possibility that the district council may not approve the new alignment. If that were to be the case, it may result in the candidate needing to run from the floor for a different division. If the district council approves the new alignment then all will be well and good for the candidate to possibly be elected to this new position.

I hope this is helpful and has answered your questions fully. Please let us know if you have any additional questions or concerns!
Sincerely,
Rex Humphrey
District Leader Service and Support Representative
