Bulgarian President-elect has turned down the invitation by incumbent Rosen Plevneliev to take part in the Consultative Council on National Security (KSNS) taking place on Tuesday.
Rumen Radev, who won the presidential election earlier this month, has said he cannot attend the council before having assumed his duties.
There is no political crisis in Bulgaria, stated to journalists President-Elect Rumen Radev after the official ceremony for the presentation of the decision of the Central Election Commission for the nomination of president and vice president of Bulgaria, reported Focus agency.
According to Radev, a normal constitutional procedure is taking place now.
Bulgarian lawmakers are due to convene on Tuesday with the cabinet's resignation being a major item on their agenda.
The government stepped down earlier this week, following the presidential election results which determined socialist opposition-backed Rumen Radev as Bulgaria's next President-elect.
