We Continue the Change
Exactly one year after the last regular elections for the National Assembly, former prime minister Boyko Borissov's party GERB is ahead of current prime minister Kiril Petkov's "We Continue the Change" as the first political force in Bulgaria. This is shown by the data from a national survey, co-financed and conducted jointly by bTV and Market Links.
At the last minute, the government changed its proposal for defense minister. Instead of Todor Tagarev, announced yesterday, the cabinet will nominate Dragomir Zakov.
Kiril Petkov announced the change. The new candidate is Bulgaria's permanent representative to NATO.

After nearly two hours at the Supreme Cassation Prosecutor's Office, Prime Minister Kiril Petkov said he had left a list of names and expected the prosecution's focus to be on these cases of corruption and other crimes. However, he refused to give the media the names from this list.

The vote put an end to an almost year-long political logjam in Bulgaria, which now sees its biggest political shift in more than a decade.
Kiril Petkov is the new Prime Minister of Bulgaria. He became the head of the Council of Ministers after receiving the support of 134 deputies from "We Continue Change", BSP, "There Is Such a People" and "Democratic Bulgaria". Today, the National Assembly held an extraordinary sitting to approve the country's new government.
