The procedure outlines that the Committee Secretary would call for nominations and a seconder from the floor, if there is one nomination that person would be declared as the Chairperson of the Committee; but if there is more than one nomination, the names of the nominees would be put to a vote by a show of hands. After the end of the vote, a nominee with the majority of votes would be declared as the Chairperson of the Committee. Members can only vote once.

She proceeded to call for the nominations.
