Nuggets for the Parliamentary Debate Style
The Parliamentary Debate Style is quite distinct from the conventional style of debates adopted in Nigeria.
Extensive research is required to convince the judges of the merits of your position.
The initial salutations popular in the conventional style of debating are omitted in the Parliamentary style. Debaters are supposed to introduce themselves and continue with their motion.
Debaters may request a Point of Information (POI) to contest or seek clarity for a statement made by a member of the opposing party
For the purpose of the entry videos, applicants are encouraged to speak in anticipation of a rebuttal from an opposing party.
In the parliamentary style, debating teams have the opportunity to present opening and closing arguments.
