The members of Bulgaria's new Cabinet, expectedly headed by Plamen Oresharski, have been announced.

Oresharski was nominated by the Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP) and is a former Finance Minister in the Three-Way Coalition Cabinet (2005 – 2009).

In the May 12 early general elections, the Bulgarian Socialist Party, BSP, the ethnic Turkish party Movement for Rights and Freedoms, DPS, and the far-right nationalist Ataka overcame the 4% threshold to win parliamentary seats. The fourth party that made its way to the Parliament was the formerly-ruling centrist Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria party, GERB, which won narrowly and was not able to form a Cabinet as the other three declared they would not offer support.

Last Thursday, GERB returned to President Rosen Plevneliev the mandate to form a government. On the same day, Plevneliev gave it to Oresharski and the Socialists.

Plamen Oresharski - Prime Minister

Too many ministers, and the EU funds belong in the hands of the Ministry of Finance and not the Ministry of Justice.
