In Sociocracy, does the facilitator propose the candidate in a selection?

The facilitator makes sure there is a proposal that the circle can react to in a consent round. There are situations where it’s best to ask someone else to make a proposal, for example if interpersonal considerations interfere (proposing yourself, proposing your partner, not proposing someone you don’t like,…), or if, in complex selections, the facilitator loses track. Asking someone else to make a proposal typically increases the trust level in the facilitator.
