In an official letter We Continue the Change/Democratic Bulgaria (PP/DB) refuse to hold talks with GERB/SDS on the formation of a government on GERB’s mandate within the 50th National Assembly.

“If Borissov turns his party into a napkin in the greasy fingers of (Delyan) Peevski, that will be the end of his formation. There is only one solution. New elections,” writes Vazrazhdane leader Kostadin Kostadinov on Facebook, and goes on to accuse Delyan Peevski’s party the Movement for Rights and Freedoms (MRF) of vote-buying.  

The leader of the smallest formation in parliament Velichie Nikolai Markov said, in an interview with the BNR, that he would talk to GERB but only with the party’s leader Boyko Borissov. Markov said the votes for his party had been incorrectly counted and that he was not afraid of new elections but was afraid of Bulgaria being dragged into war.
