GERB will offer two options for a government, party leader Boyko Borissov said in Vratsa at a forum of the party's youth organization.

According to Borissov, the first option is for him to become prime minister because there is no one better prepared than him. The second option is for GERB to propose a neutral prime minister who will sign a technical agreement on the priorities on which all parliamentary parties will work in the coming months. The priorities will be the budget, the legislation on the Recovery and Resilience Plan, the immediate strengthening of border security and negotiations with countries that have reservations about Bulgaria joining Schengen.

Borissov urged Bulgaria not to react to the allegations made by the Netherlands as this could lead to Romania's accession to Schengen being hindered.
