PACE makes modifications to its Rules of Procedure

Some provisions of the Assembly’s Rules of Procedure need to be clarified, supplemented or reviewed in order to correspond more closely to parliamentary procedure, PACE Standing Committee said today during its meeting in Paris.

Following the proposals of the rapporteur, Jordi Xuclà (Spain, ALDE), the parliamentarians unanimously adopted a series of chapters regarding in particular the status of the chairpersons of political groups, the status of the immediate past President of the Assembly, the procedure for examining amendments in plenary sitting, the substitution of committee chairpersons who are ex officio members of certain committees, the bureaux of committees and the Assembly's special guest status.
