Impeachment is basically a stage in a process conducted by a legislative body. In this process the legislative body considers whether to forcibly remove a government official from office or not.

Impeachment is when the charges are brought against a government official. The second stage of this legislative process is conviction where it is determined whether to remove the official from office or not.

Impeachment is a legal statement of charges that runs parallel to indictment in criminal law and might not result in removal of the official from the office.

Generally in the constitution of many nations, impeachment is the initial two stages in a particular process for a governmental body to eliminate a government official without that particular official's will.

Impeachment is so infrequent that the word is often misunderstood; a common mistaken belief is to perplex it with involuntary removal from office. Where as it is only the lawful report of charges, paralleling a condemnation in criminal law. An official who has been impeached has to facade a subsequent legislative vote.

This concludes conviction, or failure to convict, on the accusations charged by the impeachment. Common constitutions need a supermajority to convict. A practice of impeachment was started way back in the law of England and Wales, where the method last occurred in the year 1806.
