Bulgaria's opposition Socialist party said it submitted on Wednesday a motion of no-confidence in the ruling coalition made up of the conservative GERB party and the nationalist alliance United Patriots over its national security policy.
The motion is prompted by the cabinet's complete failure to guarantee the national security and ensure the conditions needed for the work of Bulgarian servicemen, the Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP) said in a statement on its website.
The statement also cited rising crime and poor management of prisons among the reasons for the motion.
In April two people convicted of murder escaped from a prison in Sofia and were put on the national Wanted list. Two months later, one of them was killed in a shooting in his hometown involving another person with a criminal record.
