Bulgaria's Parliament to Get Opposition Deputy Speaker
Tsetska Tsacheva, a key lawmaker of Bulgaria's center-right GERB party, will become Deputy Speaker of the country's Parliament, GERB deputy leader Tsvetan Tsvetanov announced on Friday.
The sole opposition party in Bulgaria's 42th National Assembly announced earlier this week that was ending its boycott of Parliament sittings.
GERB is now also seeking to obtain key seats in Parliament committees, according to local media.
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.
