Bulgaria – Government survives two confidence motions in one day

Last week, the Bulgarian government tabled a confidence motion in itself. The vote was held on Thursday, or rather the votes were held then.

In the first vote, the Bulgarian Press Agency reports that the government received the support of 141 deputies, 72 opposed the government and 13 abstained. However, there were claims of irregularities during the vote. Therefore, the government held it again. This time, they received the support of 140 deputies, 60 opposed the government and 14 abstained.

The GERB government is a single-party minority government with 117 deputies in the 240-seat chamber. However, it has consistently received the support of both the Ataka party and the Blue coalition, which have 20 and 14 deputies respectively.
