The two largest parliamentary formations - GERB-SDS and We Continue the Change-Democratic Bulgaria are working together on a legislative program, which they will propose to the other political forces in the National Assembly after the holidays, BNR reporter Maria Fileva informs. GERB-SDS and We Continue the Change-DB also found common ground in laws on judicial reform, the eurozone and Schengen. Both formations will also be seeking a majority for constitutional changes. They also pointed to the need for a regular government. GERB leader Boyko Borissov said he wanted to make a government with We Continue the Change-DB.

It is clear to all of us that for Bulgaria to return to parliamentary rule, there must be a regular government. Whether it will be possible to find a point of intersection, a formula to make this happen, cannot be said for now, said Democratic Bulgaria co-chairman Hristo Ivanov. In his words, the first task now is to elect a speaker of parliament.
