98 Calling for divisions

(1) When the President states, on putting a question, that the “ayes” or the “noes” have it, that opinion may be challenged by senators calling “divide”.

(2) A division may be called for only by senators who have given their voices against the majority as declared by the President.

(3) At any time before the tellers are appointed a call for a division may be withdrawn by leave of the Senate, the division shall not be proceeded with, and the decision of the President which was challenged shall stand.
