Resigned Bulgarian PM Boyko Borisov and FinMin Simeon Djankov are absent from the Parliament plenary Thursday which will discuss and vote the resignation.

Opposition Bulgarian Socialist Party MP Petar Kurumbashev filed a proposal for Parliament to summon Borisov and Djankov to the sitting.

The proposal was however voted down, being opposed by MPs from ruling GERB party.

The vote on the resignation of Borisov's cabinet is expected around 12 noon.

Boyko Borisov surprisingly filed the resignation of the Bulgarian government Wednesdasy morning following days of massive protests against economic stagnation.

Vice-PM and Finance Minister Simeon Djankov had prior to that resigned from cabinet Monday, in a bid to appease protesters.

BB has been politically astute in this resignation. He has judged that the opposition will not take up the reigns and therefore the President (his political allay) will refuse his resignation. He can then come back along the lines that he is doing his patriotic duty. Fine BB but be prepared to show some real action (instead of just lip service) otherwise you are doomed in the forthcoming elections. Real (and I mean real) action towards culling those in OC and curruption and some real movement on electricity may save (just) your skin.
