I'd like to have definition for 'wisely' here :-)

If I want more specific candidates in the concil I basically need to
vote for the one which I guess will get less votes. Once everybody does
this the situation will reverse. OTOH if I choose the first one on my
list and my guess is correct the second one might not get enough votes.

So how one can choose wisely with such system?

What is bad with having 5 votes (for each member)? I'm really asking
because I don't know voting theory. Without much thinking I suppose you
will just get 5 more votes, it won't change anything else, and it will
solve the issue mentioned above.

So basically why to use one-man-one-vote system when council has 5 
members (not 1)?
