replace presiding officer with chair pro tem

Recommended Posts

If the rules are suspended to take away the authority to preside as explained on p. 652 can the suspension include the vice president or vice presidents so as to immediately elect a chair pro tem? Or does the motion to suspend have to be repeated for each vice president in sequence?

Yes.

 

 Or does the motion to suspend have to be repeated for each vice president in sequence?

 

No.

 

The motion to suspend the rules might be made in this form: "I move to suspend the rules which interfere with having Mr. X preside over the remainder of this meeting.

Yes, a single motion to suspend the rules can accomplish suspension of all the rules that would interfere with the desired action (putting Joe Schmoe in the chair), so long as all of those rules are suspendible (which in this example they are)..  No need for tedious intermediary steps.
