Bulgaria's president Rumen Radev dissolved parliament and appointed the country's second caretaker cabinet so far this year, again led by his security and defence secretary Stefan Yanev, the president's office said on Thursday.
The new caretaker cabinet which will run the country until the early election scheduled for November 14, has three new appointments - for the positions of ministers of economy, finance and transport, compared to the previous caretaker cabinet appointed in May, the president's office said in a statement.
Daniela Vezieva and Valeri Belchev will be in charge of economy and finance, respectively, replacing Kiril Petkov and Asen Vasilev.
Hristo Aleksiev will serve as caretaker transport minister, replacing Georgi Todorov.
The president was obliged to call new early elections - the country's third vote for parliament so far this year, after each of the three biggest political forces in the strongly fragmented parliament failed to put together a government coalition.
The early general election will take place alongside the presidential election to save time and money, Radev said last week.
Earlier this year, Radev said that he would run for a second five-year term of office.
