This was announced by Kiril Petkov, co-chair of We Continue the Change on the sidelines of parliament today. If the negotiations are successful the agreement is scheduled to be signed at the beginning of next week, BNR’s Maria Fileva reports. Only then will specific names for the ministerial posts be discussed.
