Chair Entering Debate

Recommended Posts

What procedures should be followed if the Chair is going to enter the debate?

The chair should relinquish the chair to the vice chair. If you don't have a vice chair, or he's already been speaking in debate on the issue, the chair may then appoint a member to act as Chairman Pro Tempore, subject to the assembly's approval. The regular chair doesn't return to presiding until the main question is disposed of.
