hello! its me again.
does anybody know what seconder means in the following sentence:
"The new member (of the parlament), flanked by his proposer and seconder, took four paces forward."*
How would you translate it? el segundo?
*for the ones who havent read my previous posts, this phrase is in the book First Among Equals, by Jeffrey Archer, (Chapter 1, 1st page)
Thank you in advance,
