The nominee should sign the nomination form and must have taken the oath or affirmed prior to the election commencing.

Nominations for deputy Presiding Officers may only be submitted following the election of the Presiding Officer. The period during which nominations may be submitted will be announced by the Presiding Officer and the sitting will be adjourned for this purpose. Members should note that in this case, nomination forms may be obtained from, and require to be submitted to, the Clerk in the Presiding Officer’s room in the Assembly Hall. This office is accessed via the black and white corridor in the Assembly Hall Building and will be clearly signposted. Nominations for the deputy Presiding Officers must be seconded. Both the proposer and seconder must have taken the oath or affirmed prior to the nomination being made. The nominee must have taken the oath or affirmed by the time of the election. The nominee should sign the nomination form.
