The Bulgarian National Assembly will open discussions over the non-confidence vote against the ruling Simeon II National Movement (SIINM) on its Thursday session.

The MPs can give their vote not earlier than 24 hours after the debates, according to the current NA regulations.

The voting is scheduled for Friday afternoon.

The non-confidence vote, tabled last Thursday, was initially backed by all opposition political forces - Bulgarian Socialist Party, Union of Democratic Forces, Agriculture party BZNS-People's Union and the Novoto Vreme (New Time) party.

Later the New Time leaders and the Movement for Rights and Freedoms signed unexpectedly an agreement for cooperation with the ruling party, which is believed to have predetermined the vote's exit in SIINM's favour.
