Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Let me take this apart: 1. The government is appointed directly by the President, the Parliament is not involved at this stage and a confidence vote is not required. 2. Any parliamentary group may require a confidence or un-confidence vote at any time. If the government is defeated it is left in office with limited powers (care taking government). After such situation usually the President calls an early election and dissolves the Parliament. 3. In order to effectively govern, the government needs Parliament to approve a budget every year. If a government in office fails to pass a budget in Parliament it again enters care taking mode. 4. The President is not obliged to call early elections and may leave a care taking government in office until the following regular election.
