      Parliamentary pros
      An Introduction to Parliamentary Procedure
    • Rules 20 & 21: Speeches
      Speeches can be made in languages other than English, but must include appropriate translation
      No one speaks without Chair’s recognition
      Translations cut into the speaker’s overall speech time
      Content of speech must pertain to subject under discussion
    • rULE 23: QUESTIONS
      Questions can be posed to a speaker if and only if they are accepted by the speaker
      Questions must pertain to content of speaker’s speech
      The time it takes to ask the question will take away from speaker’s overall speech time
    • You may yield any remaining time from a speech to another delegation
      The delegation yielded to may accept or deny the yield
      Rule 24: Yields
      There are no double yields: yielded to delegation may not yield to a second delegation
    • Rule 27: Right of Reply
      Can only be used if a speaker has insulted the national or personal integrity of another delegation
      If granted, the offended delegation shall respond to allegations, NOT return insults
      Note: Should be submitted in writing for GA Mains committees
    • RuLe 28: ResolUtiOns and AmEndMenTS
      Any delegate can submit a resolution or amendment
      Signatures Needed:
      • Resolution: 1/5 of body (No fewer than 5 sponsors)
      • Amendment: 1/10 of body (No fewer than 3 sponsors)
      See Process on next slide

    • Rule 28: Resolutions and Amendments(Cont)
      Note: To encourage consensus building, DRs will be limited.
    • Rule 31: Point of Order
      For example: Chair states voting will take place on Draft Resolution 2 before Draft Resolution 1
      Used when a mistake has been made in the order of procedure
    • Rule 32: PoInt Of ParLiameNtaryInQUiry
      Used when an explanation is needed on a procedural matter
      For example: Delegate is confused on the difference between a substantive vs. procedural vote
    • Rule 33: Point of Personal Privilege
      Used to inform the Chair of a circumstance that may impair a delegates’ ability to participate in debate
      For example: Delegate cannot hear the speaker or the Chair
      The ONLY Point that may interrupt a speaker
    • rulE 45: Division oF Resolutions aNdAmendmeNts
      If motioned for, three votes will be take to complete process of dividing:
      A vote on whether the resolution or amendment will be divided at all (procedural vote)
      If passed, all proposed divisions will be accepted (and move on)
      A vote on each of the divided parts (substantive votes)
      A final vote on all of the accepted parts as a single DR (substantive vote)
      Note: Preambulatory clauses cannot be amended or divided out
      If all sponsors of a DR agree with a submitted amendment, the DR may be withdrawn and resubmitted at the Chair’s discretion
      There is no distinction between “friendly” and “unfriendly” amendments.
      Two contradictory amendments cannot pass
      Amendments are voted on in order of most destructive to least destructive via Chair’s discretion
