b) Once the session has restarted, the person leading the debate (Martha Moyano, after Lady Camones' censorship) casts her vote in the amphora, then the other members of the outgoing Board of Directors and the counting congressmen will do so, and immediately they will be invited to the other legislators to deposit their ballot papers, ordering that they be called by their last name in alphabetical order.
