6.3.5. If the chairman of the executive committee is present at a sitting when a matter in which he has, directly or indirectly, a personal pecuniary interest is to be taken up for consideration, he shall disclose the general nature of his interest before discussions on the matter are begun and abstain from taking part in the discussions and from voting or attempting to influence the vote on that matter.
The first paragraph also applies to any sitting of a board, committee or commission of the Community or any municipal body of which the chairman is a member.
Where the sitting is not public, the chairman, in addition to complying with the requirements of the first paragraph, shall, after disclosing the general nature of his interest, leave the sitting while the matter is being discussed and voted on.
Where the matter is taken up for consideration at a sitting not attended by the chairman, he shall disclose the general nature of his interest at the next sitting he attends.
