The BSP will remain in opposition and will not support a government with the mandate of neither GERB, nor DPS. The decision was taken by the BSP National Council. This is what Atanas Zafirov told journalists, who will serve as interim chairman of the BSP in place of the resigned Kornelia Ninova (Ninova headed the party since 2016).

Borislav Gutsanov was elected chairman of the BSP for Bulgaria parliamentary group. Zafirov said that all decisions at the meeting were taken by a majority of more than 100 votes. In his words, with today's decisions the council has broken "several lies", including the one about "a coup being carried out in the party". 

Zafirov assured that a process of unification and unity in the party and talks in the left political space for unity had begun.
