I know, but I also don't think we should put this issue on the edge

Plus, someone elected with only a plurality could easily be removed by a majority at any time - unless we require removal by a supermajority like 2/3rds or 3/4ths.

That's make a sense. So after a deliberation I support simple majority requirement (and simple majority requirement to remove)

This proceeding is perfectly legal. We don't need voting booths and stuff.

Mr. President, I'd like to ask a question of formal nature.

Is this a bill, which would require gubernatorial signature? If so, we obviously cannot chose Speaker right now.

Or is this just a part of internat Assembly rule?

 Which do not require the Governor's signature.

I believe it to simply be rules of procedure.

I've skimmed the Senate's complex rules regarding debate and voting procedures - the often-amended OSPR.   Yikes! 

I don't think a regional Assembly needs a Standing Order that is quite that complex.  In fact, I can't find any equivalent resolution passed by the Mideast Assembly.  Nevertheless, I think we should enact some sort of Standing Order on Assembly Procedure (SOAP), though - at a minimum, limiting the number of bills that can be on the floor at one time (1? 2? 3?), the order in which they shall be taken up (chronologically in the order proposed?  Lt. Governor's discretion?), and specifying a period for debate (72 hours?) and a voting period (24 hours?).   Otherwise, there may be chaos going forward.

Edit:  Whoops!  I meant to add this as a new response, not edit this post.  The original post basically said I'd look into what the Senate's procedural rules say on this matter.

Except for emergency action, perhaps?  The Senate seems to have a rule allowing shorter votes for emergency bills.

We can do that if it is felt to be necessary.
