No election possible due to objections

During the first election for the facilitator of the circle, a holacracy savvy person was proposed for the role.

One of the circle members then raised an objection stating that it would harm the circle to elect an holacracy savvy person as it would hinder holacracy knowledge to be spread among other people. The ad interim facilitator decided to not test the objection (wich was probably a mistake) and to discard the proposal after the objection round, as he is allowed to do by constitution.

There were two more possible candidates. Both proposals were objected by the nominated person, as they felt it would cause harm not to elect a holacracy savvy person (basically they didn't feel like accepting the role).

So all the proposals ended up with objections and the circle was unable to elect a facilitator.

How is the circle supposed to continue from there?
