A floor test in a legislature is a procedure used to determine whether the executive (government) enjoys the support of the majority of legislators. It is typically conducted through a vote in the legislative assembly. This mechanism becomes crucial during political crises, such as the recent one in Maharashtra, India, involving factions within the Shiv Sena party. The floor test is intended to uphold democratic values by ensuring that the government has the majority support necessary to govern effectively. It helps prevent political instability and practices like horse trading. The role of the Speaker and the Governor, along with guidelines from the Supreme Court, play a significant role in the process and outcome of a floor test.
