There is a general principal at law that someone may move:

 "That the motions be voted on individually"

It would be *wise* for the chairperson to vote all the motions at once
but there's nothing stopping the motion I wrote getting up.

"Theoden is a kindly old man. Denethor is another sort, proud
 and subtle, a man of far greater lineage and power, though
 he is not a king." [Gandalf the White to Peregrin Took]

For this week and the next, consider me as Denethor; if you
wish the Steward's kindness, then make no haste to insult him, 
or the lands under his watch.
