The block generator is chosen based on either among the richest of the nodes, or among the oldest of the nodes. Since PoS requires a certain stake from a miner, therefore it is only logical to choose among older nodes which have proven their credibility or richer nodes who can stake substantial amount of ether with a known cost of losing it entirely in case they try to portray an attack on the network.
