Everything you need to know about an interim #GovernmentOfNationalUnity.

STEP ONE: no confidence vote - VONC

A vote would be held in the Commons. If majority of MPs vote in favour of Boris Johnson, he'll remain PM.

If they vote against him, he will be expected to resign.
STEP TWO: Commons coalition

After a government is dissolved in a VONC, there’s a two week grace period for former government or opposition MPs to unite to form a alliance that can command the majority of the House.
If this is achieved, the alliance leader will go to the Queen and tell her that they have the confidence of the Commons and can be temporary head of her new government.

If no one's able to form a unified government during two-week period, an election will have to be called.
