Bulgarian PM, FinMin Absent from Resignation Debate

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.
