A. Roll Call
At the beginning of each session, the Rapporteur will make a Roll Call, calling the names of member states and observers in alphabetical order.
Delegates should raise their placards and say “present” when their countries’ names are called.
Delegates who are late for the Roll Call are supposed to send pages to the Dais to state their presence.
The quorum requires the attendance of no fewer than 1/3 of the member states. And only when the quorum is fulfilled can the president announce the beginning of debate. Any substantive vote requires the attendance of more than half of the member states.
B. Speakers List
After the Roll Call, the Speakers List will be established for Formal Debate. Once being added to the Speakers List, delegates are given 90 seconds and are allowed to speak generally on the topic, state countries ’ positions, address Draft Resolutions or Working Papers currently on the floor.
Delegates can be added to the Speakers List either by being chosen by the Chair or by sending pages to the Dais.
The Speakers List will be followed by all debates on the topic, except when interrupted by procedural motions, crises, and the discussions of Draft Resolutions or Amendments.
Once the Speakers List is exhausted, the Formal Debate will automatically come to an end and a procedure to vote on the Draft Resolutions is required.
C. Procedural Motions
Procedural motions are in order at any time when the floor is open. Delegates can motion for a Moderated Caucus, motion for an Unmoderated Caucus, motion to suspend the meeting, motion to close the Formal Debate or motion to adjourn the meeting.
Delegates who motion for a Moderated Caucus must briefly explain its topic, specify time limit for the whole Caucus (not to exceed 20 minutes) and the time span for an individual speech. Motion for an Unmoderated Caucus only requires a total time limit. Chair has the right to suggest changes of the Caucus motioned.
The dais can select between 1 and 3 delegate(s) for motion(s). A second from another delegate and affirmative votes no fewer than the simple majority are required to pass a motion.
The order of voting on motions depends on the priority of them, from high to low. From the highest to lowest priority, the motions are respectively motion to suspend the meeting, motion for an unmoderated caucus, motion for a moderated caucus and motion for the closure of debate. For motions of the same priority, they are voted according to the time that they are presented.
Other motions on the floor will automatically become invalid by the dais if a motion for a moderated caucus passes. Then the president will choose delegates of a certain amount to speak. The delegate who presents the past motion has the alternative to choose speaking as the first speaker or the last one.
No other motions will be in order during a Moderated Caucus except a motion to suspend the ongoing moderated caucus.
At the end of each session of the conference, Chair has the right to suggest a motion to suspend the meeting. The motion for suspension requires simple majority of members for passage.
After the discussion of the Draft Resolutions, delegates are allowed to put forward the motion to close the Formal Debate. On receiving the motion, Chair shall invite two delegates to speak for and two to speak against this motion, granting each delegate 60 seconds of speaking time. Once this motion is passed with two-thirds majority of members, the floor will be closed and any motions for Moderated Caucus or Unmoderated Caucus will be out of order. The Roll Call Voting for Draft Resolutions will ensue.
During the Formal Debate, delegates are allowed to raise Point of Order, Point of Inquiry or Point of Personal Privilege. Points do not require votes but only come into effect with the approval of Chair. Points can be raised either by sending pages to the Dais or by raising placards.
Delegates have the right to raise Point of Inquiry to ask Chair about the rules of procedures when they are confused.
During the discussion of any matter, delegates may raise Point of Order to indicate an instance of improper procedures；
Whenever delegates experience personal discomfort which affects their participation in the proceedings, they may raise Point of Personal Privilege to request a rest.
E. Right of reply
Right of reply is exercised when a delegate believes he or she is personally attacked or the country is unjustifiably condemned.
When exercising the right of reply, the delegate is required to send a note to the dais to introduce the issue to be replied. If the dais reaches a conclusion that the delegate deserves an exercise of right of reply, he or she will be given no longer than three minutes for a public statement next time when the floor for motions and points is open.
Simple majority is calculated by rounded half of countries present and plus 1 (50%+1). It applies to procedural votes, including: (a) the passage of motions for Caucuses, (b) suspension of the meeting. Only “Yes” and “No” are allowed in procedural voting.
Two-thirds majority is calculated by rounded two-thirds of countries present plus 1 (2/3+1). It applies to substantive votes, including: (a) the passage of Draft Resolutions, (b) the closure of Formal Debate, (c) the passage of Unfriendly Amendments, (d) the passage of Draft Directive, (e) the reorder of Draft Resolutions
A Roll Call Voting is required when voting for Draft Directives or Draft Resolutions. Delegates shall vote "Yes", "No", "Abstain" or "Pass". Delegates who have voted "Pass" shall only vote "Yes" or, "No" in the second round. Those who voted “Abstain” will not be counted in the total number of absolute majority.
A Position Paper is a literal comment about the position of a country. Structure of the Position Paper shall be formed by (a) a general introduction of the topic; (b) position of your country; (c) solutions to problems.
A Working Paper is a record, summary or reflection of issues discussed during the previous meeting submitted by one or several countries. The format of a Working Paper is relatively free, but requires to be brief, understandable and to the point. Only Sponsors are required, and shall be titled.
All Working Papers shall be submitted to the director. After the approval of the director, copies of the Working Paper will be distributed to all delegates who will then have two minutes to go through the Working Paper. One of the sponsors will be required to make a two-minute introduction. Disapproved Working Papers cannot be put into discussion.
Motions of Moderated Caucuses to discuss Working Papers can be raised after the introduction. Working Papers do not need to be voted on.
A passed Draft Resolution is the final resolution to the issues discussed by the committee. It represents the whole committee’s standpoint with the constructive and practical resolution.
A Draft Resolution should be divided into two parts that are Preamble Clauses and Action Clauses. Preamble clauses function as statements of the background, past actions taken and position. Action clauses are executable solutions, mainly those having been discussed.
The preferential content of a Draft Resolution should include (a) raise constructive and executable solutions; (b) keep with the formal format; (c) reveal continuity and creativity in accordance to rather than reaffirming the past terms; (d) be free from substantive mistakes.
The Dais of the committee will announce that the floor is open for receiving Draft Resolutions. The Director is in authority to send back the Draft Resolution that fails to meet the criteria and requires corrections.
Draft Resolutions will be numbered according to the order. Take "Draft Resolution 1.2" as an example, "1" represents the order of topic discussed, and "2" represents the order of submission of Draft Resolution. Only Draft Resolutions approved by the Dais can be distributed among delegates.
After the distribution of Draft Resolutions, delegates will be given five minutes or more to read the papers. Automatically, Chair will announce a five-minute introduction of each Draft Resolution in which no more than three representatives of Sponsors shall give an introduction. Then, a five-minute Q&A session will be held.
After the introduction of the Draft Resolution, the chair will automatically proceed to a Q&A session. In this session, each delegate is encouraged to ask or answer questions about any debatable standpoint of the Draft Resolution, which will enhance the efficiency of the conference. Those questions and speeches put forward in this session can provide directions for the following motions on the Draft Resolution.
Sponsors are main-submitters of a Draft Resolution and Signatories are countries which second to the Draft Resolution. The number of Sponsors and Signatories shall add up to more than 20% of the number of delegates present. Sponsors of a Draft Resolution cannot submit or second to another one.
Motions to reorder Draft Resolutions are in order only before the voting of Draft Resolutions. This motion requires two-thirds majority to pass. And the same draft resolution can be voted only once.
A Draft Resolution can be amended by Amendments after its submission. Besides amending the vocabulary, grammar and logic problems, an Amendment is essential for pushing forward the meeting and involving more parties to reach an agreement. The Draft Resolution can be revised by the friendly Amendments and the unfriendly Amendments.
As a condition of submission, the total sum of Sponsors and Signatories of an Amendment shall be no less than three. The directors will verify the Amendments and demonstrate the approved Amendments to delegates. Still, a motion of Moderated Caucus is required to discuss Amendments if necessary.
Clauses of an Amendment agreed by Sponsors of the relevant Draft Resolution make up a friendly Amendment. The Draft Resolution will automatically be revised by a friendly Amendment. Acknowledgment of a friendly Amendment should be divided into two situations: (a) when the Sponsors of the Amendment covers all the Sponsors in the Draft Resolution, (b) when all Sponsors of a Draft Resolution are not Sponsors of the Amendment to it, clauses unanimously agreed by all Sponsors of that Draft Resolution consensus make up a friendly Amendment. In case (b), the Chair shall announce the Amendment and ask all Sponsors of the relevant Draft Resolution for their attitudes to make up the friendly and the unfriendly Amendments.
Clauses of an Amendment not agreed by all the sponsors of the relevant Draft Resolution make up an Unfriendly Amendment. One of its sponsors is required to give a two-minute introduction to the clauses. An Unfriendly Amendment requires a clause-by-clause voting. They can be introduced by a delegate that is neither a Sponsor nor Signatory to the Resolution. Unfriendly Amendment requiresat least 2/3 of the Sponsors to vote “Yes”.
动议有主持核心磋商的代表需要阐明磋商的主题、每位代表的发言时间、总发言时间（通常不超过 20 分钟）。而动议自由磋商只需要代表提出总时长即可。主席有权建议代表对动议内容做出修改。
在决议草案的讨论结束之后，代表们可以动议结束辩论。在代表提出该动议之后，主席应当选择支持该动议和反对该动议的代表各两名，这四名代表将会有 60 秒的发言时间。结束辩论的动议需要三分之二多数的代表支持才能通过。一旦该动议通过，正式辩论则结束，此时，代表将不得动议有主持核心磋商或自由磋商，会议将自动进入决议草案的唱名投票环节。
出席会议代表数量的 50%，再加 1，构成简单多数。对于程序性问题的投票，如动议磋商、动议暂停会议，均需要简单多数的代表投票支持。在此类投票中，代表能且仅能投“支持”或“反对”。
