AWA, On what basis the normal WP becomes pWP at the event of an existing pWP crashed/stopped in AE system with multiple AE nodes?

Assume we have 3 AE nodes in Active-Active mode ( no NWP licences) scenario:

As far as I understand,One of the node(very first node), one WP will assume as pWP ( usually the very first WP started in the AE system and connected to the DB). All other WP(s) in the AE system will be active and do the job processing as per its role.

At the event of an existing pWP crashed/stopped in AE system, one of the other running WP will assume as pWP.

However there is no proper explanation found in the documentation on what basis this happen. Will it first try one of the WP in the same node or it can be randomly on any WP on any one. Or is it as per the WP number sequence . Or is it depend on the performance value gathered at the WP start-up.  Or any other criteria?

Appreciate if someone can share some knowledge on this?
