Boyko Borisov, leader of the centre-right party GERB, which gets the most votes at Bulgaria's early elections, said he was afraid the country might face another early elections and added he was ready for offers from the other parliamentary represented parties.

He refused to make concrete announcements, before seeing the final results of the elections, but said he would not make a coalition with the centre-right Reformist Bloc, which would be the most likely coalition partner of GERB, because they were “too small” and were “setting conditions for him not being a prime minister”.

“Who else could be a prime minister,” Borisov asked rhetorically. “They don't want me - what can I do?”

According to Borisov, the 90 seats his party would most likely get, are not enough for him to form a government.

As for other potential partners for forming a government, Borisov overruled the possibility to form a coalition with the Bulgarian Socialist Party, the ethnic Movement for Rights and Freedoms (DPS) or the party of the TV host-turned-politician Nikolai Barekov Bulgaria Without Censorship.

“I am ready to rule the country, because we are the best prepared,” Borisov told journalists. “I beg the colleagues party leaders to consider their results soberly, before making grand statements. I am not posing any conditions.”

“setting conditions for him not being a prime minister”

The man should also understand that many Bulgarians don't want somebody - who organised his own impunity and organised impunity for many others - as a prime minister. Remember Misho Birata...

Mr. Borisov better waits for his results in the preferential votes, and then he will see if the Bulgarians want him as prime minister...
