Out of the 7 candidates, one replied "I am indifferent to a policy change at this point. If you opt to change the policy of releasing candidates names, I will go along with it."  and the other asked for his/her candidacy to be retracted. I have personally reached out to the remaining 5 candidates again asking for their thoughts.
