Debate on No-confidence Motion against Cabinet Fails for Lack of Quorum

The parliamentary debate on a no-confidence motion against the Socialist-backed government of prime minister Plamen Oresharski scheduled for Wednesday failed over lack of quorum, the Bulgarian News Agency, BTA, reported. 
The no-confidence motion was filed last week by opposition centre-right party GERB over the government’s investment planning policy. 
The MPs of GERB did not register for the sitting, even though all of them were present in the debating chamber, when it became clear that the MPs of the far-Right Ataka party were not present, BTA reported. With the move GERB showed that "the government is hostage to Ataka", the party’s leader Boyko Borisov said. 
For his part, Socialist leader Sergei Stanishev commented that GERB had obviously decided "to spare themselves the humiliation in the debating chamber".
