committee representing it. The debate commenced as the hall slowly quieted
down after finishing their research and discussion regarding the debate and the
directives. The chair asked the house to kindly come to order.

The directives submitted by the cultural committee were going to be debated.
Representatives of the culture committee took the floor and presented their
argument. The main point of their directive was to facilitate communication with

carried now to vote for or against the third directive, which passed by a majority.
