Bulgarian Opposition Considers 5th No-Confidence Vote
Bulgarian opposition liberal Movement for Rights and Freedoms will start consultations for tabling a new no-confidence vote against the center-right GERB cabinet of PM Boyko Borisov.
The motion will address cabinet's overall politics, which the Movement sees as failed, according to MRF parliamentary group vice chair Lyutvi Mestan, who announced the move at a press event Tuesday.
The Movement will start consultations with all other parliamentary parties other than GERB and nationalists Ataka, and expects the motion to be ready for voting in the first half of December.
"Our aim is to convince all opposition parties to overcome their ambiguous behavior. They cannot both speak against the cabinet and abstain from no-confidence votes," argued Mestan.
He was referring to the rightist Blue Coalition, which is severely critical of the Borisov cabinet, but has failed to support the previous no-confidence motions.
All four of them were either tabled by leftist Bulgarian Socialist Party, or co-sponsored by the Socialists and the MRF.
Mestan added that his party sees the alleged failure of the GERB cabinet's economic and social policies as the main points to the debate of the no-confidence motion.
The Borisov cabinet's four year term in office expires July 27, 2013.
