Quelle surprise!

News comes that Dominique de Villepin has survived a no confidence vote called by the Socialist opposition in the Assemblée Nationale. To pass, 289 votes were needed and only 190 were mustered.

This is not altogether suprising as the government coalition of parties holds 364 of the 577 seats. Of course, de Villepin himself has never been elected to any post but these are minor considerations.
