Early election is the logical ending of the current government, GERB leader Boyko Borissov says

“They want us to split the country in two, to divide everything fifty-fifty. That is not acceptable for GERB,” said GERB leader Boyko Borissov in a comment on the memorandum proposed by We Continue the Change/Democratic Bulgaria (PP/DB) on the shared governance of the country.

“I don’t know what kind of political party that immature party is. A document of this kind should be drafted by working commissions. Years ago, we negotiated with the Reformist Bloc for about a month,” Boyko Borissov went on to say. If GERB does not accept the conditions set down, PP/DB says they are prepared to go to the polls in an early election and the rotation of prime ministers agreed upon is not going to take place at the beginning of March. Boyko Borissov commented that two-in-one elections – for national parliament and for European Parliament – will be a logical ending of the current government.

“I see someone wants to split the country down the middle in a very exotic way. It is an absurdity, in a memorandum of some kind, to want to split the judiciary, the anticorruption agencies, that is unheard of. We are not going to be a part of that,” the chairman of the Movement for Rights and Freedoms (DPS) parliamentary group Delyan Peevski told reporters in parliament.
