Bulgarian PM to Run for President after Getting Married

Bulgarian PM to Run for President after Getting Married

Bulgarian Prime Minister, Boyko Borisov, will not run for president in the fall of 2011, but plans to do so for the next term.

The news was announced by Borisov himself Wednesday morning in an interview for the TV channel TV7, saying he must get married first because a president is no good without a first lady.

The PM reminded his ruling Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria, GERB, party will have a very strong presidential candidate, but declined to comment on the possibility of the Minister for Regional Development and Public Works, Rosen Plevneliev, to be nominated by GERB.

"I do not want to even listen to such talk. In some Ministries even the deputies are good enough to become president. The teams there became great, and the Ministers work well with their deputies," was Borisov's only comment.

The country's leader firmly reiterated the name of the GERB presidential nomination would be revealed on September 4 and denied rumors GERB could have a joint ballot with the right-wing Union of Democratic Forces, UDF, saying he had watched "those people" long enough to know such move would be a mistake.

Borisov did, however, admit that some of the proposals of the UDF leader, Martin Dimitrov, during the debate on the 3rd no-confidence vote which the cabinet survived Tuesday, made lots of sense and would be thoroughly examined./Source: Novinite.com/
