Negotiations to form a ruling coalition continue this week with non-public working meetings. The aim is to clear up the controversial points after the live broadcasts of 18 discussions in the various sectors of government. Today's discussions started with the topic "Agriculture".

Before the first session of the parliament on December 3, a leadership meeting of "We Continue the Change", the Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP), "There is Such a People" (ITN) and "Democratic Bulgaria" (DB) will take place.
By next week, the composition and programme of the future government should become largely clear, Vladislav Panev of Democratic Bulgaria told BNR.
The MRF is not allowed to take part in the talks. According to Hassan Ademov from the movement, the negotiators did not propose strategic goals, but went into too much detail.
