Prime Minister candidate The government project presented by Nikolai Gabrovsky failed to gain a vote of confidence.
Only 113 of the 238 deputies in the 240-member parliament voted “for” Zabrowski, the prime minister’s nominee, who is expected to take over with a simple majority. 125 deputies voted “against”.
Dr Gabrovsky, nominated by former Prime Minister Boyko Borissov’s European Citizens for European Development (GERB) party, the first party with 67 members of parliament, failed to seek support for a week before the vote.
Of the seven political parties represented in Parliament, there are only 36 seats. The Movement for Rights and Freedoms (HÖH), whose members are mostly Turks and Muslims, is Professor D. He unanimously supported the project of the Gabrovsky government.
And all other parties announced that they are against the influence of this party in politics, arguing that the administration of the GERB party, which ruled the country for 12 years with short periods until 2021, confused the country with corruption and unfair practices.
The prime minister’s candidate, Gabrowski, who took the floor before the vote, claimed that Parliament has now chosen a path towards the upcoming early elections and has begun campaigning in an environment of a previously announced lack of support.
In Bulgaria, where political instability reigns, elections have been held 5 times in the past two years.
By law, the president in Bulgaria assigns the largest party the task of forming the cabinet first in parliament. If this party fails within the 7-day period, the task is transferred to the second largest party. If the second largest party fails in the same period, the president chooses any of the other parties and gives him the task for the third time.
The president dissolves parliament if his mandate to form a third government fails.
Pointing out that early elections in the country were “inevitable”, President Radev stated that he did not want to hold early general elections in January or February in the winter period. Radev indicated that he would extend the process of forming a government in Parliament for as long as possible and would ensure the holding of the next early elections in March.
