yes, that is how a parliamentary democracy works...what's the surprise?MAJORITY RULE is the basic principle of a parliamentary system and that is what is being established by the opposition MPs.We don't vote for PMs or for a particular government.We vote for MPs and the majority of MPs can a form a government.We are witnessing a real exercise in Parliamentary democracy.Those are the rules.
