Bulgaria's President Rumen Radev will decide when to convene the National Assembly within the time limit set by the Constitution. It is likely to happen next week. This is what Vice President Iliana Iotova said for the BNR.

An opportunity to form a government should be found after the early parliamentary elections on October 2, Iotova said. 
"Bulgaria currently needs both a stable majority in the parliament, decisive, serious and literate people to lead Bulgaria through the crisis, as well as a stable cabinet," Iotova added.
