Notwithstanding any appointment by the Governor, an election must be held at the time of the next ensuing general election and/or next ensuing countywide election to elect a member when the appointee has been appointed to an unexpired term which exceeds two years. Nothing in this paragraph may be construed to alter the staggering of terms established by this section."
