Macedonian government survives no confidence vote over economy, minority

SKOPJE, Macedonia (AP) - Macedonia's conservative government early Friday overcame a no confidence vote tabled by the main opposition Social Democrats.
Lawmakers in the 120-seat parliament voted 65-43 against the motion, while 12 deputies were not present. The vote was requested by the SDSM party, which accused Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski's governing coalition of failing to revive the economy and making too many concessions to one of the two parties representing the small Balkan country's ethnic Albanian minority.
