"The next elections will be a referendum on what kind of Bulgaria we want - a country of the rule of law and prosperity, or one of the mafia. I choose law and order and I will continue to fight for this. " This is what Prime Minister Kiril Petkov wrote on his Facebook page when announcing the official resignation of his cabinet. He added that in the past six months it was an honor for him to start the long march toward recapturing the country from shady forces that hiddenly pull the threads.

"I believe that there is no other way but forward - towards Bulgaria being a state in which the law is above everything; where public funds are invested in schools, kindergartens and better health care; where every entrepreneur can start an honest business without administrative obstacles and extortion and where retirees can enjoy decent pensions,” Kiril Petkov said and added he believed he was not alone having this dream.
