      Rule 42 - Quorum

      42.1. The Assembly may deliberate, decide upon procedural motions, and agree to adjourn, whatever the number of representatives present.
      42.2. All votes other than votes by roll call shall be valid whatever the number of members voting, unless, before the voting has begun A
quorum request made for a draft text must be made before the start
of the vote on amendments or on the whole of the draft text if there
are no amendments., the President has been requested to ascertain whether there is a quorum. At least one sixth of the representatives authorised to vote See footnote
to Rule 40.6. ., belonging to at least five national delegations, have to vote in favour of the request. To ascertain whether there is a quorum, the President, before proceeding to a vote on the subject matter that prompted the request, invites representatives to mark their presence in the Chamber using the electronic voting system.
      42.3. The quorum is one third of the number of representatives of the Assembly authorised to vote. The number of representatives of the Assembly
authorised to vote shall correspond to the number of seats allocated
to each of the member states under Article 26 of the Statute of
the Council of Europe, and to which appointments were made in accordance
with Article 25 of the Statute and Rules 6  to 11  of
the Assembly’s Rules of Procedure, excluding representatives who
have been deprived of their voting rights in the Assembly or whose
voting rights have been suspended under Rule 10 . If the number of representatives authorised
to vote is not divisible by three, the number obtained as a result
of the division is rounded down.
      42.4. A vote by roll call shall not be valid, nor the result made public, unless one third of the representatives authorised to vote See
footnote to Rule 42.3. . took part. The President may decide to ascertain whether there is a quorum, using the procedure of Rule 42.2. , before proceeding to a vote by roll call.
      42.5. In the absence of a quorum, the vote shall be postponed until the next sitting or, on a motion from the Chair, until a subsequent sitting. If the Assembly is unable to vote on an item of business
on the last sitting of a part-session, the vote is postponed until
the next part-session. The Assembly proceeds to the next item on the agenda.
      42.6. If, owing to the absence of a quorum, the Assembly is unable to take a decision on one of the procedural motions specified in Rule 37 , the President shall declare that motion to be null and void.
