ROME - Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi's government won a confidence vote on Friday in the lower house of parliament.

The center-right government, which called the vote after failing to pass a routine budget provision on Tuesday, won the motion with 316 votes in favor and 301 votes against.

Berlusconi would have been forced to tender his resignation if he had lost the vote.
