He was also a member of the 45th National Assembly.

Upon their arrival at the presidency, the ITN representatives were greeted in front of the Presidency building by a protest of the People's Movement to change the system.
After the official handing of the mandate, ITN nominee Plamen Nikolov announced his and his party's priorities: "the recovery and sustainability plan; the upcoming Covid crisis; pensions - we want to recalculate everything as it should be; we also have commitments to our voters on theelectoral system, majority voting and judicial reform."
Slavi Trifonov's party will have seven days to form a cabinet. In case they do not receive support from the other parties, the mandate goes to the second largest parliamentary group.
