    (ANSAmed) - LJUBLJANA, FEBRUARY 16 - The Slovenian parliament survived a no-confidence vote late Monday for the government under Prime Minister Janez Jansa that had been presented by opposition groups.

    Some 40 voted in favor of the motion after lengthy debate in the assembly, six fewer than was required by the quorum required in the 90-seat parliamentary body.

    Opposition parties have accused the government of being undemocratic, of lacking respect for the constitution, and of violating human rights and media freedoms.

    Prime Minister Jansa rejected the accusations and called the no-confidence vote a "destructive farce".

    During the voting in the evening, a few hundred people protested in front of the parliament, criticizing the prime minister and calling for the resignation of the government.(ANSAmed). (ANSA).
