TITLE VII : SESSIONS
CHAPTER 2 : ORDER OF BUSINESS OF PARLIAMENT

Rule 158 : Adopting and amending the agenda

1.   At the beginning of each part-session, Parliament shall adopt its agenda. Amendments to the final draft agenda may be proposed by a committee, a political group or Members reaching at least the low threshold. Any such proposals must be received by the President at least one hour before the opening of the part-session. The President may give the floor to the mover and to one speaker against, and in each case for not more than one minute.

2.   Once adopted, the agenda may not be amended, except pursuant to Rules 163, 197, 198, 199, 200 or 201, or on a proposal from the President.

If a procedural motion to amend the agenda is rejected, it may not be tabled again during the same part-session.

The drafting or amendment of the title of a resolution tabled to wind up a debate under Rules 132, 136 or 144 does not constitute a change to the agenda, provided that the title remains within the scope of the subject being debated.

3.   Before closing the sitting, the President shall announce the date, time and agenda of the next sitting.
