Bulgaria's president Rumen Radev will schedule for November 14 general elections, the country's third vote for parliament so far this year, the president's office said on Monday.
The general election will take place together with the presidential election to save time and money, the president's office said in a statement published over the weekend.
Earlier this year, Radev said that he would run for a second five-year term of office.
Radev will dissolve parliament on Thursday and appoint a caretaker government, the statement added.
The president was obliged to call new early elections after each of the three biggest political forces in parliament returned a government-formation mandate.
After the July snap elections, TISP holds 65 of 240 seats in the National Assembly, GERB-UDF has 63, BSP has 36, Democratic Bulgaria has 34, the Movement for Rights and Freedoms has 29 and Rise Up! We're Coming has 13.
