Bulgaria: Bulgaria: Start of Political Season, Anti-Government Protests

Start of the political season. The big question now is what will be the fate of the government and whether GERB will be able to collect the much-needed 120 signatures to start the procedure for a new Constitution of the Republic.

This is exactly the request for stability that Prime Minister Borissov personally put on the political scene, and the ruling party set a deadline of September 2.

What does the picture look like at the moment? Even if all GERB and Patriots deputies sign, the votes are still not enough. That is, at least 4 more signatures are needed.

The situation is made even more complicated by the fact that yesterday the IMRO announced that they would not support if their demands were not set. BSP and MRF stated a firm position and said "no" to the ruling party. Today there will be talks with VOLIA and the independent deputies. The key to all this is the possible resignation of Borissov's cabinet. The sitting opened at 9 am

Then the head of state Rumen Radev will address the people and the National Assembly. This will be done from the rostrum of the Parliament, during the opening of the new session of the 44th National Assembly.

As of today, the parliament has a new address. The deputies are moving to the former Party House. As we have informed you, this idea has been around for many years, and the renovation of Sofia Hall costs about BGN 18 million.
