Tie vote on submitted point of order

Recommended Posts

Suppose the chair submits a point of order to the assembly's judgment, and the assembly's vote is tied (after the chair chooses whether or not to exercise his right to vote to make a difference). Is the point of order considered well taken or not?

It seems that the answer to this question depends upon the form in which the question is put to a vote by the chair, as discussed on page 255, lines 6-22, and in the footnote on page 255.

 

Thus, in the example which begins on page 254, line 8, a tie vote will mean that the assembly has decided that the point of order was well taken, but if the question is put to a vote in this form: "... those of the opinion that the point is well taken, say aye. ...", a tie vote will mean that the assembly has decided that the point of order (whatever it was) was not well taken.
