The Cancun accord

I disagree with Bolivia's reasons for not signing the Cancun accord but am intrigued by the way the agreement was approved:
'The "Cancún accord" was presented late Friday afternoon, and we were given two hours to read it. Despite pressure to sign something – anything – immediately, Bolivia requested further deliberations. This text, we said, would be a sad conclusion to the negotiations. After we were denied any opportunity to discuss the text, despite a lack of consensus, the president banged her gavel to approve the document.'
