President Opens Talks on New Govt on Thursday

 President Rosen Plevneliev said he will start on Tuesday consultations with the political formations in Parliament on the formation of a new government.

Addressing Parliament, the head of state reiterated his stand that a cabinet should be put in place as soon as possible to address the most pressing issues facing the nation.
Under the country's Constitution, the President should give a mandate for the formation of a new government first to the party which won most seats in Parliament. However, the election winner - the centre-right GERB - does not have enough MPs to be able to govern alone.
If Parliament rejects the cabinet lineup proposed by GERB, the second biggest political formation in Parliament - the Coalition For Bulgaria, will have the opportunity to put together a cabinet.
If neither of the four parties in parliament succeeds in appointing a government, new elections will be called in the autumn.
