Yes, filibustering should be allowed, but the chair of the parliament should have a right to terminate it whenever he or she sees fit.

No, filibustering should not be allowed, and there ought to be regulations on how often a member or his party can speak so as to prevent filibustering.

That sounds a bit dangerous. What if the "chair of the parliament" is biased and judges any member for the opposition party who stands up and speaks for any length of time as being guilty of filibustering?

@Vox: That's a good point. Most of the time, I think the chair can exercise his best judgement and make the right decision, since it will be obvious if he's just suppressing the opposition, but there definitely are problematic grey areas.
