Bulgarian president calls snap vote for July 11, appoints Stefan Yanev caretaker PM

Bulgaria's president Rumen Radev dissolved parliament and called an early general election for July 11, local media reported on Tuesday.

The president also appointed a caretaker cabinet led by his security and defence secretary Stefan Yanev to run the country until the snap vote, public radio BNR reported.

Yanev previously served as a deputy prime minister and defence minister in the caretaker cabinet appointed by Radev in 2017.

The caretaker government will take office on Wednesday.

Radev was obliged to call early parliamentary elections after the political formations that he tasked with forming Bulgaria's next government after the April 4 election failed to put together a cabinet.
