This possibility is called constructional vote of no confidence (Article 67 GG). First, a new federal chancellor is elected by an absolute majority, and then the Federal President is invited to dismiss the former Federal Chancellor. Through this procedure not only the Federal Chancellor, but automatically the entire Federal Government is overthrown (Article 69 II GG). Through a constructional vote of no confidence a simple overthrow of the government and a following uncertainty is prevented. With the prior election of a Federal Chancellor it dominates continuity.
