Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
No 'procedure'; it simply means that the parliamentary representatives of one party vote against a proposal of their coalition partner in the government. The dictionary also gives "to vote down" and "overrule".

*Lunatic*, n.
One whose delusions are out of fashion.
