“The political situation is growing worse, so are the crises, and this heightens the need to have a regular cabinet further,” President Rumen Radev said at the start of the second cycle of consultations with the parliamentary forces on the formation of a government.
He stressed further that all options must be exhausted. The first meeting was with representatives of “There Is Such a People” (ITN) party which failed to form a cabinet.
"There is Such a People" will not support a cabinet of the minority, formed with the third mandate and ruling with a floating majority, MP Victoria Vasileva said.
During the consultations with the former ruling party of GERB, the chairman of the parliamentary group Desislava Atanasova said that they would return the mandate to the President and that now it was the turn of the parties, which are considered as being an alternative, to take their responsibility.
"If the third cabinet formation mandate comes to us, we would continue in the way we have done so far - constructively and wisely in search of common ground with other parliamentary parties, excluding GERB and MRF," BSP leader Korneliya Ninova said. Consultations with the other three parliamentary forces continue tomorrow. /BGNES
