GERB is to hold a national council today to discuss the results of the local elections and whether to extend its support for Nikolai Denkov's government.  

Party leader Boyko Borissov has instructed local structures to gather information on "what their partners in government have been up to at local level". On Sunday, as the second round of voting took place, he said that in his home town of Bankya and in other towns, "We Continue the Change - Democratic Bulgaria" had formed a coalition with "Vazrazhdane" and the BSP to defeat GERB.  

Boyko Borissov accused the PP-DB of not respecting the agreement for a joint government, citing as an example the Prime Minister's letter to the President demanding the resignation of the head of шге State Agency "National Security" (SANS).
