Guest posted a topic in General DiscussionIt has been suggested by someone that to promote unity in a church for a controversial upcoming vote that someone make a motion to suspend the rules to increase the majority to 80% for the motion to pass. It would take a two thirds vote to suspend the rules, but is that an appropriate use of that type of motion?
Guest posted a topic in General DiscussionHello, I have searched for the answer to my question and have come up empty handed. I am curious if the Chairman of a Representative Assembly has the right to revoke an elected representative member's voting rights? Are there certain circumstances where the Chair would be allowed to revoke voting rights? Currently, the issue I am having is with my peers using their personal/private social networking pages and expressing their opinions of other members (not by name or in an insulting fashion), and subsequently our Chairman is threatening to revoke voting rights and even pressuring members to resign. This does not seem possible, but I would appreciate an interpretation. Thank you!
