Procedures

The House of Common's is presided over by the Speaker of the House, Matt G. The Speaker of the House is nominated by the House at the beginning of the legislative term. The procedures that the house is run by were laid out by the first speaker TRH Daniel I in "The Rules of the House". This document can be expanded and revised by the current Speaker to fit current practices, as well as implement new regulations.

Members are required to request the floor from the Speaker if they wish to address the House (unless the Speaker has left the floor open for discussion).
