At the beginning of the week, it will become clear whether "We continue the change" political party will accept the proposal of Democratic Bulgaria for joint participation in the early parliamentary elections, the party co-chairman Assen Vassilev told BNR. He repeated the thesis that his party will not form a coalition with GERB while Boyko Borisov holds a leadership position.

As for Gazprom, the former Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance Vassilev emphasized that Kiril Petkov's government did not abandon the contract with the Russian company according to the rules by which it was concluded. "We continue to have a contract and every day we sent a request to receive quantities. There is not a single contract in Europe under which Gazprom fulfills its obligations", the politician added.

According to Asen Vassilev, the cooling in the relations between "We continue the change" and President Rumen Radev began after the replacement of Nikolay Pavlov as director of Bulgargaz and the withdrawal of Sotir Tsatsarov's admission as the chairman of the anti-corruption commission. He denied that "We continue the change" was created as a presidential party.
