Filling a Blank; No Suggestion Receives a Majority Vote

Technically the motion could be adopted without the blank being filled but that's not going to be considered moving forward since the book says: " If by chance the motion is nevertheless adopted, the blank should be filled and the motion completed before any new subject (except a privileged one) is introduced"  RONR (p. 167)

The proposals to fill the blank can be reconsidered.  Tinted pages 10-11, Motion 22.

Also, the rules may be suspended to permit the blank to be filled by a plurality vote, then, if it's filled, the main question still needs voted on with a majority vote to adopt it.

Perhaps the original motion could be withdrawn with the assembly's consent and presented in a different fashion as well.

Others may have more creative options.

In addition to the above, I would suggest that members could offer additional suggestions to fill the blank.
