LISBON, Nov 11 : A left-wing opposition alliance in Portugal toppled the country's minority conservative government in a parliamentary vote on Tuesday, less than two weeks after it was sworn in.
The newly-formed bloc comprising the Socialist Party (PS), Communists and their allies voted for a motion rejecting the government's programme, in a move likely to spook investors and markets as the country still recovers from an economic crisis.
The move brings an automatic end to the government of Prime Minister Pedro Passos Coelho, whose centre-right coalition won the most votes in last month's elections but lost the absolute majority it had enjoyed since 2011.     ?AFP
