At a briefing at GERB's headquarters, the leader of the political force, Boyko Borissov, said the party would not delay its mandate to form a government after receiving it from the President. According to Borissov, however, GERB's project for a new government would not be accepted, but another one would not be proposed. He expressed doubt that the second largest party in parliament would propose a cabinet, as the goal was head of state Rumen Radev to appoint an interim cabinet.

According to Boyko Borissov, talks that the outgoing cabinet had not prepared a Recovery Plan were speculations. "We are ready to present it at any moment, but it must be read by knowledgeable people and experts," Borissov added.
