Atanas Atanasov, the co-chairman of "We Continue the Change - Democratic Bulgaria" (PP-DB), raised the question of why there is no investigation into who and for what purpose recorded the meeting of the political body of a force that received a mandate to govern the country.

The former PP-DB deputy Radostin Vasilev released a recording of an online meeting of the National Council of the PP, which talks about changing the heads of departments, about arrangements with GERB in case of possible requests to remove parliamentary immunities and with Brussels for circumventing the rules to enter the Eurozone.

"What is the power that mobilizes capacity to try to prevent the establishment of a regular government? This whole thing is a heavy active measure against the democratic country", declared Atanasov. He also said that the chief prosecutor Ivan Geshev used the "Barcelonagate" case, in which the name of GERB leader Boyko Borisov was involved, to prevent the formation of a government, as well as his own removal.

"This is a political move, not a search for responsibility. But this does not mean that there is no reason to demand responsibility from Boyko Borissov", he emphasized.
