The Standing Orders of the Assembly
The Standing Orders and Other Rules of Procedure of the National Assembly (PDF, 2.7 MB) are the rules that the Assembly draws up to govern its proceedings and those of the parliamentary committees. In keeping with parliamentary tradition, the Standing Orders result from a consensus among the Members, and amendments to the Orders are adopted unanimously.
The current Standing Orders have been in effect since March 13, 1984. Amendments were made over the years, notably on April 21, 2009, following a major exercise in parliamentary reform.
