Bulgaria:first session of the new parliament after elections

Seven 'new' parties. Appointment of new government expected

29 November, 16:40
(ANSA) - SOFIA, NOV 29 - The President of Bulgaria, Rumen Radev, has signed the decree to convene the 47th National Assembly next Friday, after the early parliamentary elections of November 14. The new unicameral Bulgarian parliament, which consists of 240 deputies, is very fragmented, with seven political forces that have exceeded the threshold of 4%. In terms of votes, the first is the new center-right party, 'Let's continue the change' (CC), which deems the fight against corruption to be its primary objective. The CC has won 67 seats and will get the exploratory mandate to form the new government.

Immediately after the final results of the vote, negotiations for the government began between the CC, the Socialists (Bsp, 26 seats), the populist party ITN led by TV showman Slavi Trifonov (25 seats), and the right-wing party 'Democratic Bulgaria' (16 seats).

All these four parties, defined as "parties of change", have declared their intention to exclude from any possible majority the conservative Gerb party led by former Prime Minister Boyko Borissov, who remained in government for almost ten years (59 seats), and the Turkish minority party DPS (34 seats), held responsible for the stalemate and rampant corruption in the country.
