Under this act, parliamentary procedure was altered to allow for constructive votes of no confidence.

Constructive motions of no confidence will take the following form: "I move that this house has no confidence in the government of <current prime minister>, and calls for the appointment of a new government led by <name of person you want to be prime minister>."

Constructive motions of no confidence may be called by any member of parliament, subject to the following conditions:

  • The nominee for Prime Minister must accept the nomination before a vote can take place.
  • The nominee and the motion author must be different people.
  • If a constructive motion of no confidence goes to a vote, the author may not create another constructive motion of no confidence within the same session of parliament.
  • Similarly, if a constructive motion of no confidence goes to a vote and is defeated, the nominee in that motion may not be nominated again during the same session of parliament.
  • The Speaker may not be nominated.

Traditional motions of confidence and no confidence may still be called.
