Slovak PM survives no-confidence vote

Slovak PM Iveta Radicova survived a Parliamentary vote of no-confidence in the first such test of her centre-right coalition government`s stability.



Bratislava: Slovak Prime Minister Iveta Radicova has survived a Parliamentary vote of no-confidence in the first such test of her centre-right coalition government`s stability.

The opposition fell seven votes short of the 76 it needed to dismiss the government early Wednesday after an overnight debate, with 69 legislators voting in favour of the motion.

The vote was requested by the opposition left-wing Smer-Social Democracy party of former prime minister Robert Fico and the ultranationalist Slovak National Party, who claim Radicova is not good enough to lead the government.

The four-party coalition government stood firm even though it is split over a plan to boost the powers of the eurozone`s bailout fund.

Radicova is the first female premier in Slovakia.
