The motion of no confidence, also known as a motion of confidence or a confidence motion, is an extremely powerful tool that can be instigated by any member of the Cupertino Parliament. A carryover from the British Westminster system, it acts as an check-and-balance in the government, ensuring that Parliament can step in if the executive or judiciary branches over-reaches or does not perform to a satisfactory standard.
Motions of no confidence began as one of two ways to remove an officer without an election- the other one was impeachment. Impeachment was a way for judicial officers to be removed and its process was headed by the Superior Court- whereas motions of no confidence were headed by Parliament. This system was too complex however, and was ultimately amended with the passing of the Judicial Confidence Amendment.
