turning the gavel over at the annual meeting

Can the President who chairs the annual meeting turn the gavel over to the Nominations Chair and permit the Nominations Chair to conduct the nominations/election portion of the meeting, not turning the gavel back to the President until elections have been completed?

The president should not be doing this. It is his duty to preside. If he is doing this because he is a nominee, he should see RONR (11th ed.), p. 451, l. 35 - p. 452, l. 3.

If he is doing it because he thinks the nominating committee is in charge of the election, he should see RONR 11th ed.), p. 435, l. 4-5.
