Opposition wins no-confidence vote but doesn't topple government

January 4, 2016 19:21

A Yesh Atid no-confidence motion garnered 54 votes to the coalition's 53 Monday, but the opposition's victory did not bring down the government because it did not get the necessary 61 votes.

The motion's title was "the government is trampling the public's trust in it and the Knesset."

This is the sixth loss for the coalition in the plenum; the previous five were on bills in preliminary votes.
