If a poll is demanded as aforesaid, the same shall, subject to Articled 95 be taken at such time not later than 48 hours from the time when the demand was made, and at such place, and either by open voting or by ballot, as the Chairman shall direct, and either at once or after an interval or after adjournment or otherwise, and the result of the poll shall be deemed to be the resolution of the meeting at which the poll was demanded.  The demand for a poll may be withdrawn.

Scrutineers at poll

Which confer a power to vote on the resolution not being less than one-tenth of the total voting power in respect of the resolution; or
