Stanishev “survived” the seventh vote

The parliament denied the seventh vote of non-confidence of the government of Sergey Stanishev. Of the 233 deputees that voted, 85 agreed with the vote of non-confidence and 148 didn’t. There were no undecided deputees this time.

The entire opposition demonstratively left the plenary hall right after the deniying of the vote of non-confidence against the government. This time, they didn’t request for a re-voting.

The prime minister thanked the opposition for the latest vote and said that the debates that surrounded it clarified the large number of goals that the government achieved.

Stanishev defined the vote of non-confidence as a “democratic responsibility of the opposition to seek the weaknesses and offer alternatives”.
