About the Debate:
The Asian Style of debating is the 3-on-3 format. In this format, there are two teams comprising of 3 members each.
One team represents the "Government" whose role is to propose the motion on the floor for discussion and to defend it. The Government consist of: - The Prime Minister, The Deputy Minister and The Government Whip.
