SOFIA - Bulgaria's fragile new government, under pressure from daily protest rallies against graft and organized crime, got a sorely needed boost on Thursday when parliament approved two deputy prime ministers.

Lawmakers endorsed Daniela Bobeva, an experienced banker, and Interior Minister Tsvetlin Yovchev as deputies for Bulgaria's technocrat prime minister, Plamen Oresharski, in a vote postponed from Wednesday.

Oresharski's coalition, composed of Socialists and the ethnic Turkish MRF and in power for just three weeks, controls barely half of the seats in parliament and relies on the passive support of a nationalist party to stay in office.
