Tension in Voting Procedures for 7p

At 14.32 in room 313 the first resolution has passed.

Throughout the entire day, this classroom of 7th graders has been debating about non-communicable diseases and their impact. At 14.45 delegates representing the USA, Canada, and the UK discussed aeroponics to sustainably produce vegetables, ultimately combating diabetes and obesity. There was tension in the room when they presented their final resolution poster, with immediate silence followed by a few whispers of last-minute decisions and attempts to persuade others to follow their resolution.

The chairs opened up the floor to questions, two delegates standing their ground at the front of the classroom, defending their resolution. Following this, a few points of inquiry towards the chairs were brought up to clarify the voting procedure, still new to the young delegates who’ve only been doing this for a day. Delegates were given one minute to decide among themselves.

The time elapsed, it is 14.50, and by one vote this resolution has not passed.

7p has ended their day of mini-MUN with one resolution passed but a class full of successful students.

I’ve been a chair for many years, and you guys have been one of the most active groups of students. Even though only one resolution has passed you should all be incredibly proud of yourselves.

— Sebastian (Chair)

A nice speech from their chair and a few gossip box messages later, and all tension has faded.
