GS 2016 Article 27 – Point of Order: Application CO 32

As there had been some confusion on the floor of synod over the application of CO 32, the chairman indicated delegates could vote as follows.

  • – Appeals: if a synod member has been involved in the judging of a certain appeal at a minor assembly, he is advised not to vote when an appeal on the same matter is dealt with by synod.
  • – Committees: if a synod member is a member of the Board of Governors or the Standing Committee for the Book of Praise, their legal context prevents them from voting. Members of other committees (e.g. CRCA, CCCNA, CNSF) are free to vote in matters pertaining to the committee of which they are part.
