"We Continue the Change" begins negotiations for the formation of a new cabinet against the backdrop of the presidential consultations that continue today. The party of outgoing Premier Kiril Petkov will meet tonight with its current coalition partners "Democratic Bulgaria" and the Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP), as well as with independent MPs. Yesterday, "We Continue the Change" and BSP did not attend the consultations with Bulgaria’s head of state because of the extraordinary meeting of the National Assembly Committee on Budget and Finance.

"The talks will be held on the basis of a clear programme and commitments. "If an agreement is reached, a composition of a cabinet and an action plan will be proposed in the form of a public invitation to all MPs in the National Assembly. Our purpose is to form a majority of 121 MPs who stand against corruption and backstage players", reads the position of “We Continue the Change Party”.
