Infrastructure Minister Gašperšič survives no confidence vote

Ljubljana, 20 September - Infrastructure Minister Peter Gašperšič survived in parliament on Tuesday a no confidence vote held over what the opposition, especially the United Left (ZL), sees as lack of progress in the planned construction of a second rail track to the port of Koper. Only 13 MPs backed the motion, which required absolute majority or 46 votes.
