“Regarding the abundance of political statements and proposals made in recent days, I would like to say the following: There is a very clear legal process mentioned in the Constitution, and we with great reason respect and follow it,” the leader of the “Is There Such a People” party Slavi Trifonov posted on Facebook three days after the election.
Trifonov wrote the post just hours after Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov called on the leader of “There Is Such a People”, who came second in Sunday’s parliamentary elections, to take up his responsibilities.
“Their game will probably cause more chaos. “We were responsible until the election, from now on our fellow politician Slavi Trifonov must go ahead and take his responsibilities,” Borissov said.
“With over half a million voters, fellow politician Slavi Trifonov must appear and take responsibility. It does not matter if they are the first or the second in this case. We will propose, they will not choose him and he will come next.
That is why I ask him as his colleague to start forming the composition of the government, which will consist of the president of the parliament, committees, ministers, deputy ministers.
Do not give up, do not excuse that you are losing something. I am ready to have ten members on duty to support them. It is important for me to have a stable government. “I want the work to be smooth, and it will have a clear government,” Borissov said, adding that the parties that made up the main opposition had collapsed.
“If they see the political situation as difficult, if there is no solution, new elections are not the answer. Here is your decision, you have all talked about the Grand National Assembly, about the majority elections, let President Radev present the draft of his Constitution. “We convene the Supreme National Assembly, solve all problems and start from the beginning,” the prime minister suggested.
