"We Continue the Change - Democratic Bulgaria" will today return the folder with a completed mandate for forming a government. At 11 am, the Bulgarian head of state will receive Prime Minister nominee Nikolay Denkov, who will announce the composition of his draft cabinet.
According to the agreement with GERB-SDS, the two political forces will stand behind an expert government with a rotating prime minister. In nine months, Nikolay Denkov will have to cede the prime minister's post to former European Commissioner Mariya Gabriel.

"One of the key objectives of the regular cabinet and the majority in this parliament, apart from passing a budget and entering Schengen and the Eurozone, is a comprehensive judicial reform and functioning institutions, regulators and security services to restore the confidence of citizens and justice in the state ”, the members of "We Continue the Change” announced.

For his part, Rumen Radev commented that there are no expert cabinets. "Yes, the cabinet is composed of experts, but the political leadership and political responsibility will be borne by the parties that stand behind this government. Very soon it will become clear which party has what kind of dominance in the relevant ministries," he said.
