7. Interpretation of the Rules of Procedure

The President informed the House, under Rule 226(3), of the following interpretations of the following rules, provided by the Committee on Constitutional Affairs:

Interpretation of Rule 32(5), first subparagraph, second indent:

'The political declaration of a group shall set out the values that the group stands for and the main political objectives which its members intend to pursue together in the framework of the exercise of their mandate. The declaration shall describe the common political orientation of the group in a substantial, distinctive and genuine way.'

Interpretation of Rule 149a(2):

'The drafting or amendment of the title of a resolution tabled to wind up a debate under Rules 123, 128 or 135 does not constitute a change to the agenda, provided that the title remains within the scope of the subject being debated.'

If no objections to these interpretations were raised by a political group or by a number of Members corresponding at least to the threshold, pursuant to Rule 226(4) of the Rules of Procedure, within a period of 24 hours following their announcement, they would be deemed to have been approved. If this was not the case, they would be put to the vote in Parliament.
