Bulgaria's GERB Announces End of Parliament Boycott
The parliamentary group of the opposition center-right Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria party, GERB, is gathering together at the beginning of September in a bid to return to work.
The Member of the Parliament from the formerly-ruling GERB and ex Speaker of the Parliament, Tsetska Tsacheva, reported Tuesday the party's leadership has reached a political decision to return to plenary hall and participate in the work of all parliamentary committees.
She added GERB will also appoint their representatives in those committees that have vacancies due to the party's earlier boycott.
According to Tsatcheva, the leadership have revised their position and now want to act as the real and only opposition in the 42nd General Assembly.
After the inaugural session of the Assembly on May 21, Boyko Borisov, former Prime Minister and leader of GERB, declared the party would boycott parliament sittings by non-attendance and refusal to register for voting until the Parliament was ready to discuss Election Code amendments and new early elections were scheduled.
