The leader of the GERB party, which is the winner of the elections for National Assembly, Boyko Borisov, has warned that this is not the time for ultimatums and anger. "It's time for the state," he said at his first press conference since the June 9 election. 

"I think that the parliament, government, presidency should have an understanding on common national issues," Borissov said. "There will be a government if the prime minister is from GERB. I will not run for prime minister, so that we can calm down the possible negotiations," he also said and specified that the future cabinet must be dominated by GERB and pointed out the positions of foreign minister and minister of defence. He also said that Maria Gabriel would not participate in the cabinet. The only chance is everyone to overcome their ego and form an expert cabinet," Borissov added.
