It is a common practice in formal settings, such as parliamentary procedures or academic debates, where participants can interject and seek clarifications or additional details from the speaker. By using the phrase "point of information," individuals can express their desire to contribute to the discussion by asking a question or seeking further information on a specific point.

    Explanation
    When someone moves to suspend the rules, interruption is not allowed because it is a motion that requires immediate action without any interruptions or discussions. It also needs a second, meaning that another member of the group must support the motion in order for it to proceed. Lastly, a two-thirds vote is required to pass the motion, indicating that a significant majority of the group must agree to suspend the rules.

    Explanation
    "I call for a division" is a phrase commonly used in parliamentary procedures to request a formal vote on a particular issue. By saying this, the speaker is expressing their desire for a rising vote, where members physically stand to indicate their support or opposition. This phrase is used to ensure a transparent and accurate voting process, particularly when a voice vote may not provide a clear result.
