Constant Change in Bulgaria (PP) – Speaking at the press conference of the Alliance for Democratic Bulgaria (PP-DB), Asen Vasiliev, former Finance Minister and co-chairman of PP, said that the Citizens’ Alliance for European Development in Bulgaria (GERB) – Democratic Forces announced United States (SDS) that it will not be able to participate in a government formed under a mandate or partnership with the coalition.
Former Prime Minister and Chairman of the GERB Party Boyko Borisov said at a press conference yesterday (6 April) that the new parliament should form a normal government, regardless of the price the parties will pay. The leader of the Rally for Economic Development party warned that otherwise there would be new early elections and threatened to block the adoption of the new state budget.
Representatives of the PP-DB coalition said they are ready to negotiate with other political forces in Parliament to find a way out of the political crisis. Former Prime Minister and co-chairman of the People’s Party, Kirill Petkov, said, “The budget should not be held hostage to negotiations between political entities. Neither hospitals, businesses nor young families can wait any longer, and work on the budget must start from day one.” It was understood that other issues to be discussed by the new alliance were agriculture, food prices, and participation in Schengen and the eurozone.
“If the Reform-South party fails to form a government with the first mandate, we will take responsibility and propose a government on behalf of our coalition,” said Petkov.
Atanas Atanasov, co-chair of the World Bank Alliance, stated that the new alliance could not help rehabilitate Boyko Borissov, let alone support a government under him.
The co-chair of the World Bank coalition, Hristvo Ivanov, admitted that the PP-DB coalition failed to show its full potential in Sunday’s elections. According to his statement, Bulgaria needs a government, but not any government, but a functioning government.
