BULGARIA-NO CONFIDENCE VOTE
Bulgarian opposition keeps trying to unseat the nation's government

Bulgaria's opposition has scheduled a second confidence vote regarding the government in just a week, underscoring the depth of the Balkan country's months-long political crisis.
Prime Minister Plamen Oresharski's Cabinet survived a confidence vote last week regarding its investment policies, and is expected to rally enough support in parliament to withstand the next one, too.
However, the oppositional center-right GERB party says it will continue to call such votes until the government resigns. That is allowed under Bulgarian law as long as each confidence vote raises a different issue.
