Acting PM Glavchev Declines Meeting with Radev, Proposes Himself as Foreign Minister

Acting Prime Minister Dimitar Glavchev has declined a scheduled meeting with President Rumen Radev, citing a proposal for him to also take on the role of Foreign Minister in addition to his prime ministerial duties. This decision comes amidst ongoing discussions regarding potential ministerial changes within the Bulgarian government.

However, discussions between Glavchev and Radev regarding potential replacements have faced complications, with the president expressing reservations about certain candidates.
