During the voting process, the members have the right to refuse or accept casting their votes; also the abstaining member has the right to set forth the reasons after taking approval and before declaring the final result.

The speaker of the council announces the council’s decision in accordance with the final result. Actually, it is not permissible to open a debate about any discussed issue, unless the absolute majority decides otherwise, or in cases stipulated by ordinances or law, taking into account that the council’s decisions are binding for the target group meant by the decision.
