Example of how a debate should be conductedChairperson calls the room to order (makes sure everyone is seated and is quiet).He stands and says
CLEARLY 
:"Good morning ladies and gentlemen and welcome to today's debate. The motion fortoday’s debate is "........". On my right, for the proposition team, we have (names of the speakers) and on my left, for the opposition team we have (names of thespeakers). Our judges for today are (judges’ names)." Pause after each name, so thatthey have time to acknowledge. It must be assumed that they are not known to theaudience. He may indicate (by an open palm) the judge in question as their name isbeing mentioned. “The speaking times will be (x minutes per speaker – if they are all the same or xminutes for the 1
st
speaker, y minutes for the 2
nd
, etc).” The chair should also mentionthat if the speaking time is exceeded, he will shout, “Time!” (The watch is not stoppeduntil the speaker stops speaking)."I would now like to call upon the first speaker of the proposition (speaker's name) toopen the debate."To vary, he can say, “It is now my pleasure to introduce the 2
nd
speaker ...He sits.The 1
st
speaker stands up (I think it looks better) and says, ‘Mr Chairman (or MadameChair), judges, ladies and gentlemen, today’s motion is ...’  All the speakers should acknowledge the chair, the judges and the audience, and atthe end of their speech they must have some means of showing that they have cometo the end of their speech even it if it’s a mere ‘thank you!’ Remember the order of the speakers:1
