Actually the formula used (S/S+O) is from a ranking point identical to (S-O/S+O) (=(S-O)/(Total-Neutral). And the result would have been different if the formula (S-O)/Total had been used (Maria would have been in). So in some ways it was the Neutral votes who decided, or rather that the formula used disregard the Neutral ones, saw them as identical to abstain.

A discussion exist on the election pages already and for future election it is worthwhile to look into how the neutral votes should be taken into account (and if there a distinction between abstain and neutral).

Whereas this is a correct statement, it is irrelevant. The voters voted knowing that only support votes count. If the system were different, they could have voted differently.
