The Conference of Santiago Plenary (Portuguese: Plenário da Conferência de Santiago  • Spanish: Plenario de la Conferencia de Santiago  • French: Plénière de la Conférence de Santiago) is the unicameral legislative and supreme governing body of the Conference of Santiago, formally composed by the Heads of State the member states of the organization or duly appointed representatives. It is one of the Conference's five intitutions, and it adopts the Statute of the Conference of Santiago.

The Plenary discusses the political direction of the Conference of Santiago through official communication channels and meets in special sessions to discuss and vote on matters of great significance. Meetings are convened either by the Secretary-General or by the representative of any member state of the Conference, and are chaired by the Secretary-General. The meeting place was designated to be in the capital city of the member state whose leader serves as Secretary-General, nonetheless it mostly occurs in a virtual space, usually the Conference of Santiago Discord server.

Structure

Chair

According to the Statute of the Conference of Santiago, the Secretary-General is responsible for chairing the sessions, or summits, of the Plenary, acting as a speaker of the house, independently of whoever summoned the meeting, unless prevented by force majeure, on which case he appoints a substitute to act solely as speaker. Upon a summoning of a session, the Secretary-General is responsible for setting the date for the meeting in accordance with the majority of the Plenary members. In the framework of a direct democracy, as a head of state of a member nation, the Secretary-General isn't required to be politically independent, although he is required to act as less biased as possible and, since the creation of the office, the officeholder have adhered to the practice of abstain of voting.

At beggining a session, the Secretary-General shall call the summit summoner to formally present his reasons for the summoning. The Secretary-General, then, addresses the member states on the topics which will be discussed, giving the word on explaining them to the summoner member. It is up the Secretary-General, as chair of the Plenary, to grant and withdraw the word to representatives of member states at his discretion, to keep order and to determine the duration of the meeting.

Other plenary members

During a session, the other members of the Plenary must stick to the topics whose meeting has been called, and, after the presentations, they can speak freely, although the Secretary General may take the floor and grant it to another. The members of the Plenary may also present their own matters for debate, to be voted on in the next session or in the daily discussions, according to what the Secretary General deems best. At the end of the debate, the Secretary General summons the representatives of the member states to vote on the matters discussed.

Rules

The Plenary members may be called by their official styles and titles, but a certain degree of informality is allowed and even encouraged. When presented with a matter, the Plenary may vote and any matter will be approved or reject by simple parliamentary majority, over which the Secretary-General holds the cast vote in case of a tie. If a matter is approved, the member nations must compell to it under penalty of being expelled from the Conference; if a matter is rejected, then it can be presented once more in the next session, provided with common sense; if there is a tie, then the matter shall be adjourned to the next session for discussion and voting immedialty after the the presentation of newer matters for discussion and before the realization of new proposals by the representants of other member states.
