Estonian Prime Minister Kaja Kallas survived a no-confidence vote on Wednesday, with 55 lawmakers backing her and 36 backing the motion for removal.

The motion was brought by two members of the opposition, who accused Kallas' government of making a series of economically incompetent decisions, to the detriment of national security.

Kallas, who has been in office since January, has refuted the charges.
