Bulgaria's Govt in Talks over Accession to Eurozone Waiting Room

Bulgarian authorities are involved in talks to secure the country's accession into the ERM II mechanism, interim Prime Minister Ognyan Gerdzhikov said on Wednesday.
"I have the ambition that the caretaker cabinet should hand the application for ERM II. Bulgaria meets three of four criteria," Gerdzhikov said at his first briefing marking one month in office.
His government took over from that of Boyko Borisov, who stepped down in November, triggering a political crisis and paving the way for early elections.
"On the fourth criteria, negotiations must be carried out, as it is a political decision after all. There are people working on this, but as of today I would not dare guarantee we will succeed," daily 24 Chasa quotes him as saying.
The paper also cites sources according to which the country should have a stable government first and then submit an application.
