 The Restoration Superiors General - VincentWiki
The pope therefore named Dewailly as “superior general of the entire Congregation of the Mission,” receiving all the faculties, honors, prerogatives, and rights of that office by apostolic authority, that is, not directly through an election held in a general assembly.
In his first circular to them, he admitted that the day of his election was “the most painful of my life.” Although he had been their director since 1827, he expressed his weakness and fears at the task confronting him of being their superior general as well as that of the Congregation of the Mission.
Etienne’s comment on the election was that “the spirit which had inspired it was not from God.” For reasons known only to him, he falsely reported the number of votes, saying that the margin of victory was only one vote.

Labour has now for the first time won its third election in a row—not in spite of Blair’s leadership but because of it, specifically because of his farsighted strategy of dropping red-flag-and-cloth-cap “socialism” in favor of a streamlined, market-friendly version of modern European social democracy.

First, there is his health: having abused his body over the years in war and duels, Jackson was not in good shape and probably spent the last decades of his life in constant pain which only his vast willpower could overcome.
Getting cheated (as many felt) would lead to a second, successful campaign in 1828, but even this had a high price, as the slander he was subjected to due to the dubious circumstances of his marriage would emotionally wreck and eventually lead to the death of his wife.
