Bulgaria PM, Sergey Stanishev, has announced that there is no chance that his BSP party will form a coalition with opposition party GERB after this summer's general elections.

In an interview for Bulgarian daily newspaper Standart, Stanishev said "I don't see the point in distancing from Dogan (leader of DPS), as we have always been parts of two separate "entities": we have always belonged to two different parties with different political platforms as well as ideologies. However, the Movement for Rights and Freedoms(DPS) has turned out to be a loyal partner. There's no such thing as a pre-determined coalition between the BSP and DPS. But a deal with GERB is out of the question."

He added that "a coalition between GERB and Ivan Kostov's Democrats for Strong Bulgaria (DSB) is already forming in the right political specter. Kostov will logically head the new Cabinet."

Stanishev also commented on his current record in government saying "I'm proud that we have fulfilled our mandate because we have achieved really tangible results. Now we are analyzing what was promised and what was implemented."

Stanishev concluded by commenting on his personal conflict with Sofia Mayor and GERB leader, Boyko Borisov; "We have always held open election campaigns. But let's put it frankly: for two years already the BSP has been the target of a systematic negative campaign, organized by Boyko Borisov.....Talking of personal attacks, they are constant and propriety is often thrown to the winds."
