Current Affair 2:
Detail about No-Confidence Motion
A motion of “No Confidence Motion” against the Government can be introduced only in the Lok Sabha under rule 198.
In a parliamentary democracy, a government can be in power only if it enjoys the majority and confidence of the directly elected house i.e., Lok Sabha in the case of India. The rules of Lok Sabha allow for a motion of no-confidence, where-in any MP can garner the support of 50 MPs and introduce a motion of no-confidence against the government.
The Speaker then, once satisfied that the motion is in order, will ask the House if the motion can be adopted. If the motion is passed in the house, the Government is bound to vacate the office.
The Constitution of India does not mention about either a Confidence or a No Confidence Motion.
A no-confidence motion needs a majority vote to pass the House. If individuals or parties abstain from voting, those numbers will be removed from the overall strength of the House and then the majority will be taken into account.
Some important facts about Prelims Exam.
The first no-confidence motion was moved during the 3rd Lok Sabha. Acharya Kripalani moved this motion after Sino-India War when Jawaharlal Nehru was the Prime Minister. The motion garnered 62 votes in favour and 347 votes against and hence, it did not go through.
Overall, there have been 27 No-Confidence motions so far. The number of no-confidence motions has reduced in the more recent Lok-Sabha terms.
Indira Gandhi led Government faced the most No-Confidence motions
8 out of the 14 Prime Ministers of India have faced a no-confidence motion during their tenure.
More than half of the total no-confidence motions were moved against Indira Gandhi’s government who faced 15 of the 27 no-confidence motions. However, none of these 15 motions were successful, with all of them being defeated.
Voting after the discussion determines whether the motion is successful or not. In case of a no-confidence motion, majority votes in favour of the motion mean that the government has lost the confidence of the house and must resign.
Only three Prime Ministers have lost the motion till date:
Vishvanath Pratap Singh, Atal Bihari Vajpayee, and Atal Bihari Vajpayee
