Bulgarian President 'to Call Parliament Parties' for Consultations Next Week
President Rosen Plevneliev is to have talks with the eight parties that entered the legislature as early as October 15, or next Wednesday, Presidency sources say.
A date for the first session of Parliament is to be set during the meeting.
It is most likely for Plevneliev to call the 43rd National Assembly a week later, on October 22, but October 29 is also a plausible date, daily 24 Chasa says, citing the sources.
Bulgaria's interim government, which has been in office since August 6, is to submit its resignation a day after Parliament is called, but there is no deadline for the National Assembly to approve it.
A government mandate will be handed out to GERB, the largest party after the early elections, before the resignation is voted by lawmakers.
