Rejected petition Hold a Vote of No Confidence in Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
I would like Parliament to be given a free vote of confidence in the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson at the earliest opportunity .
With a well documented history of making comments that are proven to be incorrect or untrue (which should be enough of a reason in itself), his cavalier attitude towards the most important political crisis that was, is and will continue to be Brexit, and his handling (or lack thereof) of the UK's response to the Pandemic crisis.
This petition was rejected
Why was this petition rejected?
It’s about honours or appointments.
We can't accept petitions about appointments, which includes calling for Ministers, including the Prime Minister, to be sacked or for a vote of no confidence.
We used to accept petitions that called for a vote of no confidence. However, the Petitions Committee can’t schedule votes of no confidence. This was often frustrating and disappointing for petitioners.
If you're concerned about a particular policy or decision that's the responsibility of Government or the House of Commons, you could start a petition about that.
Petitions calling for action on policy are more likely to be an effective way of achieving the change you want.
We only reject petitions that don’t meet the petition standards.
