    Default move/ owing to

    Dear teachers,

    Would you tell me whether I am right about my interpretation of the expressions in bold in the following sentences?

    I move that the question be put to the vote.

    I move (that) nominations (should) be closed.

    I move that the discussion should be stopped owing to the late hour.

    move = propose, put forward, make a motion

    owing = because of

    Thanks for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V
