GERB Files No-Confidence Motion Against Socialist-led Cabinet

"The cabinet has no investment policy whatsoever despite  its pledges that the investment process, investments and construction are among its top priorities," a statement posted on GERB's website quoted Lilyana Pavlova, MP and former regional development minister, as saying. The new ministry of investment planning is not functioning, which has blocked the work of the administration and has led to a serious delay in a number of areas such as the issue of construction licences, the launch of new facilities, construction materials certification, residential policy, urban planning and construction supervision, Pavlova added.
The motion needs 121 votes to pass.
GERB has 97 MPs in the 240-seat Parliament, the Socialists’ Coalition For Bulgaria controls 84 seats, the ethnic Turks Movement for Rights and Freedoms (MRF) have 36, and ultra-nationalist Ataka’s MPs number 23. 
The cabinet, headed by former finance minister Plamen Oresharski, is backed by the Socialists and the MRF, and enjoys the tacit support of Ataka.
"We contemplated submitting a no-confidence motion against the cabinet for its overall policy, which is non-existent," the statement quoted the party's deputy floor leader Dimitar Glavchev as saying.  GERB decided to instead file over a short period of time a series no-confidence motions over the policies in various spheres, he added.
