About Censure in brief
A motion to censure is a main motion expressing a strong opinion of disapproval. It is usually non-binding, unlike a motion of no confidence. Censure is an alternative to more serious measures against misconduct or dereliction of duty. A motion of censure can be introduced by any Member of Parliament or Senator and passed by a simple majority to be deemed to have been delivered. In Japan, a censure motion is a motion that can be passed by certain opposition parties from certain administrations. The power to censured is not directly mentioned in the constitutional texts of Canada. The censure power is derived from the powers bestowed upon both Chambers through section 18 of the Constitution Act, 1867, and can be exercised by the Speaker of the House of Commons or the Senate of Representatives or the speaker of the Senate. It can also be passed in the upper house of the National Diet of Japan, and generally doesn’t happen as this house is controlled by the ruling party. The equivalent of a no-confidence motion in a prime minister can include a censured motion, and if it is passed, the PM can continue in office even if he faced censure for his role in the Red River Rebellion, which ended in April 1874.
A censure indicates the assembly’s disapproval of your conduct, and is not a proceeding that removes the president from the chair. In some cases, the assembly may declare the chair vacant and elect a new chairman for the meeting; or a motion can be made to permanently remove an officer. If the motion is made to censures the presiding officer, then he must relinquish the chair to the vice-president until themotion is disposed. After a motion to censor a member of the assembly, the chair addresses the censured member by name. The chair may say something to the effect of, \”Brother F, you have been censured by vote of theAssembly. A censures indicate the assembly’s disapproval ofyour conduct\”. This phrase should not be included as the cause for censure may have occurred outside of meetings. An officer being censured is not referred to by name in the motion, but simply as ‘the president’, ‘The treasurer’ or ‘Mr. Vice President’. If the censure is related to the privileges of the Chamber, the individual in question could be summoned to the bar and face other sanctions from the House or Senate.
