The government arose from the autumn general election. The vote was preceded by an 11-hour debate.

The confidence in the government was backed by 110 deputies for the three coalition parties in the 200-member lower house of parliament.

Thirty-eight deputies for the opposition conservative TOP 09 and the centre-right Civic Democratic Party (ODS) voted against the motion.

All 33 Communists (KSCM) abstained from the vote.

The deputies for the Dawn of Direct Democracy walked out before the vote was taken.
