Question

parliament, or veto oe senate?

None of those either.

This riddle is a sort of hashed mix of POW & WAI. The answer is a single word.

PG & Phoenixx had answers on the right track

If you want some more, (seconds as in Oliver Twist, "please, sir, ..")

just wait a few moments (seconds as in short period of time).

With the next (as in after the first though maybe includes "instance" and again relate to time)

instance of parliamentary conduct (as in "second" the motion)

a lieutenant (second lieutenant)

will approve the alternate (as in "second" choice).

and I too thought the title might refer to secondary education
