Unanimity is agreement by all people in a given situation. Groups may consider unanimous decisions as a sign of social, political or procedural agreement, solidarity, and unity. Unanimity may be assumed explicitly after a unanimous vote or implicitly by a lack of objections. It does not necessarily mean uniformity and can sometimes be the opposite of majority in terms of outcomes.
Unanimity is a state or condition wherein all individuals in a group or collective agree on a single viewpoint, decision, or action. It reflects absolute consensus without any disagreement or dissent.
