Radostin Vasilev, MP from We Continue the Change (PP) announced he was leaving the party over the negotiations for a coalition with GERB.

“It’s a total lie that recordings were made of the groups, at the headquarters,” Vasilev stated at a press conference, but went on to say that there was an audio recording, but that it is of a meeting of the National Council of We Continue the Change on 21 May. The Council took place online, and he was invited to it along with 60 other people, Vasilev said.

“Borissov today said he didn’t want a prosecutor general. We can play the smart aleck on TV about gentlemen’s agreements,” the voice of PP co-chair Kiril Petkov can be heard saying during the Council meeting. “The recording is not from bedrooms or apartments. If they are saying things like that when there are 60 of them, I don’t want to know what they are saying privately,” Vasilev said.

From the 5-hour long Council meeting, just a few snippets were shown such as: “We are going ahead with Mariya Gabriel as insurance,” in the voice of Kiril Petkov. The other PP co-chair Assen Vassilev explains that “some of our guys” will be appointed as heads of services who have been “approved by the embassies”.
