    Elections and Debate

    In the election of officers, is the assembly entitled to debate in the same way as in a main motion. In other words, isn't an election the question of who shall we elect as president or secretary or whatever office? (A citation to Robert's Rules would be helpful.) So, the converse, if an election isn't a question before the assembly, how is the issue of discussion fairly handled? The issue revolves around rule-making to limit the time and the people who may speak for candidates. If an overall time-limit for a candidate is set at, say, 10 minutes and only that candidate can choose who speaks (whether or not the candidate or the speakers chosen are eligible to vote or members of the assembly), isn't that a limitation on the assembly to discuss the candidates for the office? And if it is a limitation, does it not require a 2/3 vote to gain approval either as part of a set of rules or as a motion?
