In3activa Convention of translators and interpreters (CITI version 1, revision 5, "The Elections")
IV.6. Ordinary procedures
Art.45: Definition
  1. Ordinary procedures are voted by mediators in a first restricted vote, followed by a Council vote or by an associative vote. The following are examples of ordinary procedure:
    1. Admission to the Approved Entities registry;
    2. Appointment of administrative representatives;
    3. Approval of executive mandates and credits;
    4. Arbitration sentences;
    5. Motions of criticism;
    6. Any other procedure, not expressly described by this Convention.
  2. An ordinary procedure is usually associated with a budget (or an allowance) and a mandate limited in time for the procedure spokesman.
  3. The course of an ordinary procedure includes three stages:
    1. Entrance of the agreement proposal and deliberations.
    2. A first restricted vote from mediators;
    3. According to the contents of the motion, a second vote is issued by the Council, or by a direct poll from voters.
  4. The progression of an ordinary procedure has two ways:
    1. The first way (quick way) concludes after the second vote from the Council of Trustees. However, if the rule of qualified majority is in force, a contradictory vote of the Council can lead to a legitimating vote.
    2. The second way (associative way) requests as a second step a direct vote, without possibility of appeal.
  5. The course of the ordinary procedure may vary according to three factors:
    1. The quality of the spokesmen: if both spokesmen are mediators, the rule of qualified majority is compulsory, but the quick way gives the possibility of a legitimating vote;
    2. The amount of credits involved: over the threshold of procedure, the associative way is compulsory;
    3. Based on the Spokesman Procedure's criterion, the option to apply a qualified majority or to request an associative way, even if these options are not mandatory.
