GERB MPs have nominated Ivan Iskrov, who earlier resigned from his post, for a second term as Bulgarian Central Bank Governor.

Stoyan Mavrodiev form GERB described the move as an act of succession between the previous and the current governments, Darik Radio reported.

Mavrodiev also expressed GERB's surprise at Iskrov's decision to resign.

The Bulgarian parliament has released Iskrov from his position as of October 10 after he handed in his resignation early Thursday.

108 MPs voted in favor of releasing Iskrov, including all the MPs from the governing GERB party, while 59 MPs voted against letting Iskrov resign, all of whom were from the previous tri-way coalition government parties.

Iskrov is currently on holiday and his deputy Dimitar Kostov stated that it is not certain whether Iskrov will continue working until October 10.

Bulgaria former Prime Minister, Sergey Stanishev, also expressed his surprise at Iskrov's resignation.

Bulgaria's PM Boyko Borisov was reported at the beginning of August to have given up on plans to oust Iskrov, reelected in a highly controversial parliamentary vote just before the elections.
