Bulgaria's Parliament will vote today the cabinet's no-confidence vote, submitted last week by the two major opposition parties - the Socialist party (BSP) and the ethnic Turkish Movement for Rights and Freedoms (DPS).
The opposition submitted to the Parliament on Friday a motion of no-confidence vote against the government of the center-right Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria (GERB) party over "the failure of its policy in health care."
According to the Bulgarian constitution, 121 votes are needed in order to dismiss the cabinet. However, the vote does not threaten the government of Prime Minister Boyko Borisov, which enjoys the comfortable support of the right-wing opposition MPs in the 240-seat legislation.
The opposition parties have stated they did not expect to receive the needed votes. The leader of the socialists, Sergey Stanishev, has stated that the vote has already succeeded because it had managed to cause a wide public discussion on the problems in the health care.
The no-confidence vote was submitted just a day after the cabinet announced the name of the new Health Minister, Stefan Konstantinov, who replaced the ousted Anna-Maria Borisova.
Stanishev has reiterated the replacement of the health minister in no way replaces the grounds for the vote and the situation in the health care sector, which suffers the result of year-long experiments and has reached the state of total chaos and collapse.
