National Assembly Convenes for First Session

National Assembly Convenes for First Session

 Bulgaria's new parliament will hold on Tuesday its first session after the May 12 snap elections in the country.

The session will be presided by popular actor Stefan Danailov, MP of the Socialists' Coalition For Bulgaria.
Four parties - the centre-right GERB of former prime minister Boyko Borisov, the Coalition For Bulgaria, the ethnic Turks' Movement for Rights and Freedoms, and the ultra-nationalist Ataka - crossed the 4.0% threshold for entry in parliament.
It is still not clear who will be the next chair of the National Assembly. GERB's candidate is expected to be Tsetska Tsacheva, who chaired the previous parliament. Former interior minister Mihail Mikov is the Socialists's candidate, who will be backed by the Movement for Rights and Freedoms. Ataka have not announced yet if they will support either Tsacheva or Mikov.
