The Second Chamber can hold a vote of no confidence. Once that vote wins the minister hands in his/her resignation and is replaced. All others remain in place for the duration of the cabinet. The Second Chamber could also hold a vote of no confidence for the entire cabinet and the the entire cabinet has to go. Depending on the sentiments in the Chamber either the sitting parties agree to form another coalition that can count on support in both Chambers or we have new elections.
If a minister decides to leave for whatever reason the replacement is agreed on by the coalition parties who generally hold a majority in the Second Chamber and the First Chamber (= Senate).
