Bulgarian President Rumen Radev has given a mandate to form a government to the Continue Change Party (PP), the second largest group in parliament.
Nikolai Denkov, one of the former education ministers, who had been nominated by the People’s Party as a candidate for prime minister, took office at the ceremony held at his presidency.
Denkov, who has a constitutional deadline of 7 days to complete his task, stated that he will start negotiations with other political parties in Parliament from today to find support for his government.
“We are taking on a difficult, almost impossible task, but we hope that we will unite around some important issues on which the state is based and successfully complete it,” Denkov said. He said.
– The government formed by Gabrovsky did not receive a vote of confidence in parliament.
In the 240-member parliament, the People’s Party group consists of 53 deputies.
In December 2022, Citizens for European Development in Bulgaria (GERB), the largest group with 76 members of parliament and led by one of the former prime ministers, Boyko Borisov, appointed medical professor Nikolay Gabrowski as prime minister. On the other hand, the government formed by Gabrovsky did not receive a vote of confidence in Parliament.
If the attempts of the People’s Party to form the Cabinet fail, then President Radev will for the last time be given the task of forming the government for one of the other political parties represented in Parliament.
Early elections may be held in March if the crisis persists
If the government crisis persists, Bulgaria may hold snap elections again in March.
Voters in the country have already gone to the polls to participate in the elections 5 times in 1.5 years.
