"We Continue the Change" currently does not have the support of 121 deputies, who are necessary for the formation of a new government, Prime Minister nominee Assen Vassilev told BNT. According to him, whether there will be early elections depends on the conscience and the way of decision-making of several MPs. Assen Vassilev pointed out that he would not negotiate with the leader of ITN party Slavi Trifonov because of serious differences with him and his party. 

"The goals that must be followed is for the funds to go to all citizens and to stop certain companies from taking large orders, to be pre-selected," he added. 
It is still not clear whether the resigned Prime Minister Kiril Petkov will be proposed as a minister in the draft cabinet.
Negotiations for the new government begin today.
