Parliament to Convene on May 21
Thursday, 01 January 1970
Bulgaria's National Assembly will convene on May 21, President Rosen Plevneliev said on Friday, after meeting with the leaders of the parties that will be represented in Parliament.
Speaking to reporters, Plevneliev reiterated his stance that a new government should be formed as soon as possible.
On Friday, Plevneliev met with representatives of the four parties that passed the 4.0% threshold for entry into parliament - the centre-right party GERB of former prime minister Boyko Borisov, the Socialists' Coalition For Bulgaria, the ethnic Turks' Movement for Rights and Freedoms, and the ultra-nationalist party Ataka.
A day earlier Borisov said GERB, which won a slim majority in Sunday's snap elections but failed to secure enough seats in Parliament to govern alone, will demand a cancellation of the vote.
