Bulgarian Caretaker Govt to Be Revealed March 12
Bulgarian President, Rosen Plevneliev, surprisingly announced he was going to reveal the names in the caretaker government on Tuesday, instead of Wednesday as it was the earlier deadline.
The information was reported by his press office, quoted by 24 Chassa (24 Hours) daily.
Plevneliev grounds his decision on "the speculations with names leading to discrediting possible candidates or them turning down the invitation."
The Prime Minister has already been designated, but most likely his or her name would not be among the ones circulating as rumors for weeks now.
It also remains unclear if during his weekend visit to Vienna, Plevneliev has held talks with the Bulgarian representative for the Nabucco gas pipeline project, Dimitar Abadzhiev, whose name is also among the rumored ones.
On February 21, Bulgaria's Parliament approved the resignation of the government of Prime Minister, Boyko Borisov, and his ruling Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria party, GERB, amidst the unprecedented since 1997 protest rallies against the unbearable utility bills, the monopolies and the wide-spread poverty, which later turned into a civil unrest and political demands.
Snap general election is to be held May 12, just two months ahead of the regular date in July.
