Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov has said he will only step down if his party's candidate loses the runoff of the presidential election.

GERB's nominee, Tsetska Tsacheva, has come second in the first round.

Borisov had earlier declared intention to deposit his resignation if Tsacheva lost the first round. The latter is thought to have garnered fewer votes than Rumen Radev, the main opposition candidate of the socialists.

He has now ruled out stepping down when Sunday's election results are confirmed by authorities.

However, the government will resign "on Monday morning", November 14, if Tsacheva loses the runoff to the socialist-backed candidate, Rumen Radev.
