During the consultations with President Rosen Plevneliev, we stated that we will return the mandate when it is handed over to us. We will not participate with proposals during the third mandate as well, stated BSP' leader Korneliya Ninova at the end of the consultations held after the resignation of the Borisov 2 cabinet.
"It is clear to everyone that there is a new political situation in Bulgaria and there's nothing dramatic about it," Bulgarian president-elect Rumen Radev has said.
"Despite the bluffs of powers-that-be [who predicted] an apocalypse you voted for change," he has told Bulgarians at a press conference after first exit poll results were announced.
The Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP) leader Korneliya Ninova has said she will not seek support from any other political organization for the upcoming presidential vote.
The BSP's candidate, Maj Gen Rumen Radev, is not supported by other left-wing parties, who pulled out of talks with socialists in the summer, nominating their own candidates.
"We have officially invited ABV and DPS for talks on the vote of non-confidence in the government on Monday," said BSP leader Korneliya Ninova on Darik radio.
The concrete reason for the non-confidence vote on the foreign policy of the government is the withdrawal of the support of the Cabinet for the nomination of Irina Bokova, but also the foreign policy of the country as a whole.
The parliamentary group of BSP Lyava Balgariya has decided to start discussions with other political parties for submitting a vote of non-confidence against the Borisov 2 Cabinet after, earlier on Wednesday, the Council of Ministers nominated European Commissioner Kristalina Georgieva for UN Secretary General.
