abtaining from voting

I assume you mean the officer made a motion to table a pending motion. There is no requirement for the maker of a motion to vote in favor of his own motion, or to vote at all for that matter. Members have a fundamental right to abstain from voting.

The part that might not be 'permissible' is the motion to table, which is often used incorrectly when someone wants to postpone consideration of something to a future meeting.. but that wasn't your question.
