    Council

    Kingdom Come, with added emphasis from Jill wrote:The Council is comprised of the Queens/Regents and the Bishops of the Black and White Courts. The Council may gather when they desire. They have the power to rule together with the authority of a King. If there is no King present at a gathering, then the Council's orders are like the orders of a SINGLE King. A Council needs to have majority rule in order to wield their authority. They can, at their discretion, call upon the Deistical Prelate to give advice and in rare cases, to break a tie. This is considered a privilege for the Prelate, not a right.

    The Council can use their authority to overrule or to support a lone King. Supporting a King means a mandate can be made. Overruling a King, however, is very significant as it can be further backed by a decision of non-confidence. This can allow a political removal of the King in question, but there are other considerations. Such votes of non-confidence tend to be rare as it requires one's own Queen/Regent and Bishop vote against them.

    Note: a vote of non-confidence is not the same as ousting a King.

    Kingdom Come, with emphasis added by Jill wrote:The Council can choose to stand together to veto a King. They can then immediately follow that veto with a public vote of non-confidence. As long as the opposed King agrees to this, often giving pause to ensure that none of the votes were influenced by those under the effects of Techniques, then the King in question is dethroned. The Queen/Regent must choose who from the Court to put on the Throne in the King's place. Although this process can be swift, it is rare, as the full Council must vote against the King in question and that would mean that the King's own Queen/Regent and Bishop must be displeased enough with the King to do so.

    Therefore, the Council can make decisions or support a King by majority vote, but when it comes to dethroning a King, the entire Council must be in agreement.

    I guess you might disagree with what "the full Council must vote against the King" means, but for our intents and purposes, I read it to mean ...well...that the full Council must vote against the King. Meaning they must be unanimous.
