A filibuster is a dilatory tactic within the Executive Branch whereby, as is permitted by procedure within the branch, an Executive proceeds to "hold" the floor during the last 24 hours of the debate period on a matter and continues posting every fifteen minutes and saying "hold" so that this hold extends into voting time and cuts time on a vote down while preventing anyone else from speaking.
A filibuster can be stopped by a motion for cloture, which brings a matter directly to a vote, but this requires a two-thirds majority of the Executives.
