The MPs of the coalition partners Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP) and the Movement for Rights and Freedoms (DPS) defeated the quorum for the no-confidence motion in Parliament. 

Upon the start of the working day, in the hall were present only 109 MPs – 90 of the opposition centre-right GERB who passed the no-confidence motion last week, eight of BSP, seven of DPS and four of the radical Ataka.

“You can only imagine how well the government rules, with the support of 19 people,” commented the GERB leader Boyko Borisov, quoted by Dnevnik.bg

The second registration did not garner the necessary quorum of 121 either and the Speaker of Parliament Mihail Mikov rescheduled the session for May 28. The opposition received this with banging on the benches and chanting “Resignation”.
