The Wisconsin Peace Conference opened 4/21/5627 (Turn 14) So far delegates from 17 governments are in attendance. The Washington delegate has stated he will only be an observer but has now been called on to speak twice. He initially said he would vote to break ties, but recently said he thought it would countermand his neutrality and has said he will not vote at all.
At the beginning of the conference, Washington received the first chairmanship by agreement and decided to rotate the chairmanship weekly, round-robin. He determined the order in which the chair would rotate by rolling polyhedral dice.
Effectively the chairman controls the floor for a week, though others are permitted to speak, no item can be brought to a debate or vote without the chair’s permission.
