No Confidence Motions Defeated

The Knesset has defeated eight motions of no confidence in the government of Prime Minister Ehud Olmert. The motions covered a range of issues, including criminal investigations against the prime minister.

This (Monday) evening's motions were defeated outright. Last week, three motions of no confidence passed, but did not have the 61 votes needed to topple the government.
