Sometimes unanimous approval can be presumed if the Chair feels that no one would raise an objection if he formally requested it. [16] For example, if it is obvious that members of an assembly are listening to a speaker who has exceeded the debate deadlines but is about to be completed, the Chair may allow the speaker to continue without interruption. [16] For example, the enactment of laws by unanimous consent does not require that every member of a legislature, a majority of members, or even a quorum of representatives be present to vote. [10] Unanimous consent only presupposes that no representative of those present has requested a recorded vote or that a quorum be verified. .
