BP debate

British Parliamentary debate is one awesome debate that focuses on strategy and quick-thinking.
Just when you think debate in Asean Parliamentary is tough enough, you have yet to encounter one step higher of a level in BP. haha jokes

One debate that I'm looking forward to participate this year, which will be my last involvement insyaAllah, is the IIU BP debate this 13th-15th of August.

Here's my understanding of how the debate will commence:

1. Two debaters per team, two teams on each Govt and Opp sides resulting in four teams per debate and eight debaters per House. (thats a lot!)

2. Comprises of an Opening and Closing Govt, and Opening and Closing Opp.

3. The flow is the same as any other debates, starting with Prime Minister, Opp leader, DPM, DOL, then the 1st speaker from the closing Govt, 1st speaker of Opp, 2nd speaker closing Govt and finally 2nd closing Opp.

4. Every debaters can bring forth new arguments except the final speaker of the closing Opp.

5. The winning steps are counted by points;
3points - 1st place
2points - 2nd place
1point - 3rd place
0points - 4th place

6. Yeah, it seems kinda ridiculous, like, how can the Opening and Closing distinguish the wins when they're on the same sides? Remember, its a strategy game, so what you must do is to devise a totally different plan of attack (case) from your rivals.
eg. if the Opening has been talking bout Economies thus the Closing should deliver points regarding Politics.

7. To break, it depends on how many points are collected at the end of the day.

Yep, see you guys in the tournament!
