The decision to switch the default init to systemd was made by the Tech
Committee. You can read the history of that decision here

There's also a related General Resolution that was written, adapted and
voted on by Debian members. The full details of that are here

As for "who", 483 Debian Developers voted, as listed here

All this stuff is in the open for anyone to read and catch up on. I
hope you find it enlightening.
