Draft Resolutions and Working Papers
The steps for introducing and debating a draft resolution or working paper are
- Motion to introduce Working Paper or Draft Resolution. Requires no vote.
- Chair will suspend the rules. Requires no vote.
- Reading session where Working Paper or Draft Resolution is distributed, and delegates either read silently or present the paper.
- Q&A period between 3-5 signatories and the other delegates.
- Return to debate as normal.
In order to later amend a draft resolution or working paper, the steps are slightly different:
- Motion to introduce the amendment.
- Debate occurs by Chair's discretion.
- Motion to close debate on amendment.
- Two speakers against closing debate.
- Vote to close debate (2/3 majority).
- Vote on amendment.
