The new party "We Continue the Change" has signed a coalition agreement with the parties "Volt" and "Middle European Class" for joint participation in the parliamentary elections on November 14, the formation has reported. We will not have common lists with "Democratic Bulgaria" and "Stand up BG! We are coming!" because we are a centrist party, co-chairman of the party Kiril Petkov has told Nova TV.

Belene NPP should not be built, and coal-fired power plants should inevitably be closed, but this should be postponed as much as possible, Petkov commented on the problems plagueing the energy sector. He called for a quick change of energy company chiefs because they were part of the problem with high electricity and gas prices.
