Four MPs Quit Ataka Parliamentary Group

Four MPs walked out of nationalist party Ataka's parliamentary group, leaving it with the minimum number of deputies required for its existence - ten.

Parliament Speaker Tsetska Tsacheva announced that Borislav Stoyanov, Ognyan Tetimov, Dimitar Karbov and Petar Hlebarov have left the Ataka parliamentary group, Sofia-based online news portal Sofia Echo reported.

If Ataka's parliamentary group shrinks to less than ten MPs, it will have to dissolve.

Ataka won 21 seats in Parliament in the elections held in July 2009 and since then eleven MPs have left its parliamentary group to become independents.
