Bulgaria's Prime Minister Boyko Borisov and his cabinet involving participation or support from a total of four parties were approved and sworn in by the National Assembly on Friday.
Eleven of them are from Borisov's centre-right GERB party, six represent right-wing Reformist Bloc (RB) and one comes from left-wing ABV party.
The Socialists will take part on a second round of consultations over forming a government coalition if GERB extended an invitation for meaningful political negotiations, Socialist leader Mihail Mikov said on Tuesday.
He, however, stopped short of indicating whether the Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP) is ready to make concessions and render support to GERB.
Center-right party GERB is to hold another round of negotiations with four parliamentary parties this week, its leader Boyko Borisov said.
Borisov announced after a Monday meeting of the leadership, mayors, municipal councilors, MEPs and MP-elects from GERB the right-wing coalition Reformist Bloc would be the first political entity conservatives will meet for talks.
As expected, the left-nationalist party Ataka refused to have government consultations with the centre-right GERB.
According to the party leader Volen Siderov, the Ataka representatives tried to contact the GERB with a demand for live television broadcast of the negotiations, but did not receive an official response and cancelled the consultations.
