No Confidence Motion on Leader of Cornwall Council
Things at Cornwall Council are likely to get very interesting in the next week or so. The reason for this is 41 Cornwall Councillors have put their name to a no-confidence motion on the Leader of Cornwall Council.
Now this has been submitted, an emergency council meeting will take place on the 16th October at New County Hall, starting at 10 am. It will be simply a yes or no vote. If the vote goes against the leader, then he is automatically removed as leader, and a new leader has to be in place by the end of the day. It will then be up to the new leader to pick his cabinet.
That does not mean the cabinet will automatically change, as it could stay the same. I will imagine a lot of arm twisting and talks in quiet corners will be taking place in the next few days.
