Bulgaria's Prime Minister Boyko Borisov will propose to his Cabinet to ask the Parliament for a confidence vote about the overall policies of the government. This was announced late Tuesday night by the press center of the ruling center-right party GERB.
During the regular weekly meeting of the Cabinet on Wednesday, Borisov will offer to his ministers to request a confidence vote in Parliament. Borisov first presented his initiative to ask for a confidence vote to the Executive Commission of the GERB party late Tuesday night. The Executive Commission of GERB has supported unanimously the motion of the Prime Minister and party chair.
The announcement of the GERB party does not cite specific reasons for demanding a confidence vote in Parliament "on the overall policies of the government".
Shortly after the GERB press center announced Borisov's intention to go for a confidence vote in Parliament, Volen Siderov, the leader of the nationalist party Ataka, has declared hardline support for the Cabinet, and vowed "no backstabbing" on part of his formation.
