The parties trying to form a cabinet will need the support of the Bulgarian Socialist Party, MP Rumen Gechev from BSP forecasted in an interview for the Bulgarian National Radio. The socialist party will not support any prospective cabinet, proposed without complying with the political rules and consultations with BSP, noted Rumen Gechev. The Bulgarian Socialist Party cannot support some of the priorities announced by There is Such a People party (ITN) such as: the privatization of state owned Bulgarian Development Bank, granting concessions for the construction of Hemus motorway and abandoning the Belene NPP project, said Rumen Gechev.

In his words, BSP is not satisfied with its election results, yet it retained its third position. The Bulgarian Socialist Party will not return the government-forming mandate, if President Radev hands over such a mandate to BSP. The socialist party will talk with other political forces and try to form a coalition or a programme cabinet, said Rumen Gechev.
