Petition Require Parliamentary approval for appointment or removal of the PM

The former PM advised Her Majesty that Boris Johnson commanded the confidence of Parliament even though only a quarter of MPs had voted for him. The confidence of Parliament being taken for granted in this way undermines public respect both for Parliament and for our whole system of government.

More details

We ask that no individual be deemed to have the confidence of Parliament (or to have lost the confidence of Parliament) until it has expressly demonstrated confidence in that individual (or greater confidence in some other individual) through a secret ballot of MPs, using a voting system that a) maximises their ability to clearly demonstrate who would have their support (in order of preference), and b) allows them to trigger a general election by voting for ‘None of the Above’.
