GERB party of Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov has said it will unveil its candidates for President and Vice President of the country on October 02.

The move will come just a week ahead of the start of election campaign that is due on October 09.

The date has been approved by the party's Executive Committee, its decisionmaking body, GERB has announced in a statement to the media.

The conservative party, which is the senior coalition partner in Bulgaria's minority government, has repeatedly refused to name its candidate.

Speculation has been rife whether Borisov will choose to run himself or will put forward close affiliates within the party.
