Chairman / Vice Chairman

A chairman and a vice chairman are elected out of the council members and their term of office is two years.
A chairman is representing the council, settles opinions, keeps orders in the council, and supervises affairs of the council.
A vice chairman replaces the chairman in the event of illness, accidents, etc.

Main Sessions

A main session consists of all council members and the final decision making stage for all council’s responsibilities and duties.
Saying “decide, designate, or resolve vote” in council indicates that it is to be in the main session.

  • Prohibition of double jeopardy : No bills rejected in the session should be suggested or submitted during the same session.

Standing Committees
