Radev to give government-forming mandate to BSP for Bulgaria

On May 5, President Rumen Radev will hand over a mandate to form a government to the third largest parliamentary group in the 45th National Assembly - "BSP for Bulgaria", the press office of the head of state reported.

BSP Chairwoman Korneliya Ninova said she would convene a National Council to decide whether to accept the mandate. "No talks can be held with GERB. This is how it is," Ninova pointed out.

This is the third attempt to form a government after GERB-SDS and "There Is Such a People" returned the mandate. If BSP failed to form a cabinet, the President would dissolve the parliament and a caretaker government would organize early elections. /BGNES
