Socialist-backed Govt Survives No-Confidence Vote

Bulgaria's Socialist-backed government survived a no-confidence vote on Wednesday requested by the centre-right GERB party over its investment planning policy.
The no-confidence motion was rejected in a 111-86 vote in the 240-seat parliament. Twenty MPs of the far-right Ataka party abstained from voting.
The motion needed 121 votes to pass.
GERB has 97 MPs, the Socialists’ Coalition For Bulgaria controls 84 seats, the ethnic Turks Movement for Rights and Freedoms (MRF) has 36, and Ataka’s MPs number 23. 
GERB moved for a no-confidence vote on September 19.
