The Chair will call the proposer and seconder and give you each approximately 2 minutes to speak (the exact timing depends on how many motions need to be debated).
Make sure you’re on time, and know what you want to say. It’s a good idea to have some notes written down. LSESU will print the order paper and arrange microphones, so you just need to concentrate on speaking in defence of your motion, as persuasively as you can!
If anyone wants to speak against the motion, they can either notify the Democracy Committee in advance, to ensure that they definitely have an opportunity to speak, or just put their hand up on the day. They will also have about two minutes to put forward their opposition.
Following the initial opening statements, there is time for debate and questions and then both the proposition and opposition have a further 2 minutes to sum-up – so make sure you prepare for this too.
Voting then takes place online at lsesu.com/ugm-vote.
