DescriptionThe Bulgarian government of liberal Prime Minister Kiril Petkov was toppled on Wednesday by a motion of no confidence, plunging the country into a new political crisis after three elections last year.

The text was adopted by 123 deputies, while 116 voted against, out of 240 seats, announced the deputy speaker of parliament Miroslav Ivanov.

It comes just six months after Prime Minister Kiril Petkov and the "We Continue the Change" party came to power in December.

Petkov was elected on his promises to uproot corruption and introduce reforms in the European Union’s poorest member state.

But his centrist government was weakened when the populist "There Is Such People" (ITN) party withdrew from the coalition.

ITN party leader Slavi Trifonov has disagreed with Petkov over the country's revised state budget and has accused the PM of leading Bulgaria towards bankruptcy by raising new debt.
