The Order, Law and Justice (RZS) party had requested from Prime Minister, Boyko Borisov, that the party's parliamentary group is restored by 9 am Wednesday.

The RZS leader informed Monday he had a meeting with Borisov at the Council of Ministers building and had firmly asked the PM if his ruling Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria (GERB) party needed the RZS support and if GERB is respecting Bulgaria's right-wing conservative project.

“Is GERB really giving any consideration to the RZS international and local positions; who is stirring the constant conflicts, and why not even a single RZS proposal has been passed in plenary hall in the last 4 months?” Yanev is quoted as asking Borisov.

It was precisely during this meeting that Yanev has requested the restitution of his parliamentary group and told the PM any other outcome and proposal would be unacceptable, warning RZS has the potential to organize and conduct a serious counterstrike against those standing in their way.

The whole issue was triggered by the Member of the Parliament, Mario Tagarinski, who announced Friday he was leaving the RZS parliamentary group. This move led to the group falling apart since it now has 9 members instead of the required minimum of 10. According to the new General Assembly rules, the 9 RZS MPs can not join another group and must function as independent MPs.

On Saturday Yanev raised alarm that Tagarinski's whereabouts were unknown and that he might be a victim of a political kidnap. Later that day Borisov announced Tagarinski had called him and was doing fine.

On Monday Tagarinski said he left the party on his own will.

RZS believe the entire issue is a political racket on the part of GERB.
