Electing chair and vice chair of a parish council

0 votes
A couple of questions:

Can a Councillor propose themselves for either Chair or Vice Chair?

Can a Councillor be nominated and proposed/seconded in their absence?

If a Councillor is nominated, has a proposer but no seconder can they be elected?

Yes, nothing in law prevents it.

No, they have to be present

Legally only a proposer is required your parish standing orders may require two.
