Today, President Rumen Radev hands over an exploratory mandate to form a government to the candidate for prime minister, nominated by the first political force in parliament "We Continue the Change". The party has a week to propose a cabinet project.

If it failed, the mandate would go to the second largest force - GERB-SDS, but the coalition has already stated that they will not form a government within this parliament. After that, according to the constitution, the head of state can select a third party to receive a mandate.

At the beginning of the week, the president held consultations with the parliamentary forces, with the exception of "We Continue the Change" and the BSP. The two parties did not come because of a meeting on the update of the state budget. For the first time, Bulgaria's head of state will hand over an investigative mandate to the largest party without meeting with its representatives.
