On Friday, 2nd of December, Bulgaria’s President Rossen Plevneliev will start the procedure for handing mandates for forming a government within the framework of the current Parliament, the President said speaking after the meeting of the Consultative Council for National Security on 29th of November.
He believes this Parliament has the potential to form a government. The largest Parliamentary group, the centre-right GERB and the opposition Bulgarian Socialist Party confirmed they would return the mandate when offered to them. The Patriotic Front said they would seek support to form a new government.
At the meeting of the Consultative Council, the President made another attempt to convince the political forces to find a joint solution to the complex situation after the resignation of Boyko Borissov’s government. He said he believed the current Parliament had not exhausted its possibilities and could still find the right formula for forming a new cabinet.
