After the October 2 general elections, Bulgarian President Rumen Radev gave the mandate to form the government to Citizens for European Development in Bulgaria (GERB), which has the largest group in parliament.
President Radev announced in his speech at the ceremony held at the Presidency of the Republic that he had entrusted the task of forming the government to the GERB party.
Stating that there are 7 days to form the government, Radev said, “The society has high expectations from you. I hope you find an appropriate government formula.” He said.
With 67 seats in the 240-member Parliament, the GERB party is considered the most important party. Dr. Nikolai Zhabrowski was nominated as a candidate for prime minister.
Gabrowski, in his speech, stated that he was happy because of the position of Prime Minister that was given to him.
Referring to the political instability in the country two years ago, Gabrovsky stressed that they will try to overcome economic and social crises, especially the political crisis.
In Bulgaria, where political instability prevails, general 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 will be 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 grants the mandate for the third time.
The president will dissolve parliament if his mandate to form a third government fails.
towards early elections
The president, who will form an interim government, will set a date for early elections.
In the past two months, attempts to form a government among the country’s political forces have not been able to reach consensus.
The parties believe early elections are becoming increasingly inevitable and do not agree with their opponents.
Some parties announced that they would refuse to mandate the formation of the government.
On the other hand, President Radev indicated that he did not want to hold early elections in the winter, and indicated that the elections would extend the government formation process scheduled for next March.
