Bulgarian MPs Hold Emergency 'No-Confidence' Session

Bulgaria's Parliament is holding Monday its first emergency session in the week to discuss the latest no-confidence motion tabled by the opposition.

The second emergency session is to be held Tuesday.

Last Thursday, Bulgaria's formerly-ruling, center-right opposition Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria (GERB) party submitted in Parliament its third no-confidence motion against the socialist-endorsed government on grounds of failures in the security policy and sector.

According to the Parliament's Code, GERB's motion must be reviewed within 3 to 7 days from its submission.

In order to be successful, the no-confidence motion has to be backed by at least 121 MPs (half + one), while GERB has 95.

Kingmaker ultranationalist Ataka party already declared they would not support the no-confidence vote, dooming it to failure.

Bulgaria's embattled government has so far survived despite over eight months of relentless anti-corruption protests and two no-confidence motions.
