Most of the political leaders are firm that the outgoing prime minister Simeon Saxe-Cobrug should not head the new Bulgarian cabinet.

The politicians held meetings with the country's President Georgi Parvanov after the socialists' admitted their failure to form a cabinet with their partner from the Movement for Rights and Freedoms. The President confirmed his readiness to hand as soon as possible the mandate to the June 25 elections runner up Simeon II National Movement.

The King's party will now have to launch negotiations for the forming of a new government.

Stefan Sofianski, one of the leaders of the tiniest rightist parliamentary presented party the Bulgarians People Union (BPU), said that they would back the King's party but only if Saxe-Coburg is not at the helm of the cabinet.

Rightist leader Nadezhda Mihaylova pointed out that the Union of the Democratic Forces is open for negotiations for the forming of a right-center orientated government.

Meanwhile, the leader of the staunchly anti-communist Democrats for Strong Bulgaria and former prime minister Ivan Kostov, called for forming a cabinet of experts.

He repeated his position that the party will not support that candidature of Simeon Saxe-Coburg for prime minister.
