President Radev begins consultations with parties represented in Parliament

Bulgaria’s President Rumen Radev has begun consultations with the political forces represented at the 47th National Assembly on the formation of a future government. This country’s head of state has met with representatives of “We Continue the Change” first. The timе of autocracy in Bulgaria is over, said President Radev at the consultations.

"Bulgaria urgently needs a functioning parliament and a regular government to solve the most pressing problems in this country. Bulgaria needs a cabinet that will serve its full term", Kiril Petkov from “We Continue the Change”, who is expected to become this country’s new Premier, said.

"Our parliamentary group will be opposition of the future left-liberal government", the Chairperson of the parliamentary group of the coalition GERB/SDS Desislava Atanasova said during the consultations with Bulgaria’s President Radev.

“This year has been marked by months of repressions and the supporters and the members of the coalition GERB/SDS were affected the most. However, our coalition is the second-biggest political force at the 47th National Assembly”, Desislava Atanasova noted. "We are ready to provide support and give advices to the new government. However, every mistake made by this county’s new cabinet will be made public", Desislava Atanasova went on to say.

"We are witnessing a political crisis. It can be resolved via a dialogue between the parties and the institutions", the leader of the Movement for Rights and Freedoms Mustafa Karadayi said at the consultations with Bulgaria’s President Rumen Radev. "Bulgaria needs a regular cabinet, taking into account the multiple crises we are now facing", Mustafa Karadayi said. "This country is late with its Recovery and Resilience Plan and the absorption of funds under EU operational programmes", the leader of MRF noted. /BGNES
