Member position statements

Larry Sanger

In keeping with usual parliamentary procedure, the Chair will not make a statement.

Supten Sarbadhikari

I am summarizing the comments from the 10 received so far (through emails to Larry).

  1. The exact time allowed for discussion and/or voting may be debated, especially if periods of vacation/festival intervenes.
  2. The exact majority required to pass a resolution may be defined.
  3. Will the discussions end only on the basis of time or some other method may be adopted for more serious concerns?
  4. Whether all the final decisions be taken by a single person (Council Chair or EIC or Chief Constable) or a majority view of 3 designated members?
  5. How to optimize between sufficient amount of discussion and quick implementation?
