Voting essential the 27
Before you is juncture, are the constitution of the Parliament, scheduled for 27 December, and the election of its president, essential to the convening of the full endowment. Another vote that seems to be complicated by the fragmentation of the parliament.
The article 34 of the Statute provides for their appointment. “For the election of a president or chair, each member of Parliament will write a single name on the ballot, and be elected the one that obtains the absolute majority. If you do not would repeat the choice between the two deputies who have moved closer to the majority, and will be elected who obtain the largest number of votes.”
