Bulgarian Ex-PM Tries to Woo Right-Wing Bloc
Bulgaria’s former Prime Minister Boyko Borisov has offered to cooperate with the Reformist Bloc, a recently established union of small right-wing opposition parties.
Speaking to the Bulgarian National Television late on Friday, the leader of the opposition center-right GERB party was certain that he would find common ground with the Bloc.
“They will eventually start loving us. Because they know we are honest with them. They know that is their only chance to achieve a majority in Parliament,” Borisov said.
“We are destined to work together,” he declared, pointing out that the embattled current government would otherwise rule “for 20 more years.”
Borisov once again called upon the Socialist-led government to resign and make way for new elections.
He said the outlook on Bulgaria’s credit ratings would be downgraded further if the ruling coalition remains in power, warning that an economic “catastrophe” awaits the country in 2015.

joppy, I think things are bad enough and governments don't seem to look for peaceful solutions. Russia had to try hard to stop the West bombing Syria and then the rich West don't offer much help to Syrian refugees.
And the Ukraine it is a political battlefield between Russia and the West. No peaceful solutions appearing there, just threats of sanctions from both Russia and the West that will hurt the Ukranian People.
GERB were given the first chance to form a Government and failed.
The request to form a Government was then passed to the Socialists as the next biggest party and they formed a Government with the ethnic Turks all done by correct procedure under Bulgarian Law.
The big challenge came when the President vetoed their revised budget, as the Socialists and the Turks only had 120 votes and they needed 121. BRAVO to the Nationalists who stepped in with the extra votes.
If the Nationalists hadn't done this the Government would have failed because a Government that can't gets its Budget approved can't function.
So the socialists, turks and nationalists can work together - the facists can't, in fact the facists are so disorganised they didn't vote on the first no confidence motion they proposed - amazingly stupid
BB is right, the Facist parties will have to try to work together.
The issue is the leaders of the Facist Parties all have such big egos they can't work together.
GERB had the chance to form the Government in May and failed, their lust for power, control and wealth is so great they can't share.
