Right-wing Union of Democratic Forces (UDF) nominated former president Petar Stoyanov as member of the Constitutional Court.
Stoyanov himself announced at a press conference that he will need three days to say whether he accepts the nomination or not, state-run Bulgarian National Radio reported on Tuesday.
According to UDF leader Emil Kabaivanov, Stoyanov's nomination and his international reputation will help clean the country's image after the scandal with one of the previous nominees, Veneta Markovska.
On Monday, prime minister Boiko Borisov said the ruling party GERB will back UDF's candidate for constitutional judge.
Earlier this month, the European Commission said it may come up with an interim report on Bulgaria in connection with the newly-elected Constitutional Court members. According to the Commission, the country's parliament had failed to look into serious allegations against one of the candidates - Markovska - for trade in influence and corruption despite the signals it had received.
