Bulgaria's Brand New Reformist Bloc Mulls Rotating Leadership
Bulgaria's Reformist Bloc, a new political formation consisting of mainly right-wing parties, may consider periodically changing its leaders on a rotation principle.
The proposal has been made by one of the bloc's member parties, the Blue Unity, according to Mediapool.bg.
The Reformist Bloc currently consists of the Democrats for Strong Bulgaria party (DSB), the Bulgaria for Citizens party of former European Commissioner Meglena Kuneva, the Greens party, the National Party Freedom and Dignity, the right-wing Blue Unity party, the right-wing Union of Democratic Forces (UDF) and the Bulgarian Agrarian People's Union (BZNS).
The Reformist Bloc opposes both the embattled Socialist-led government of Prime Minister Plamen Oresharski and the center-right opposition GERB party of former PM Boyko Borisov.
Borisov's cabinet resigned in February amid nationwide protests triggered by high electricity bills and corruption, while the current government remains in power despite over 65 straight days of massive anti-graft protests in Sofia.
