Bulgarian ethnic Turkish party leader Lyutvi Mestan has slammed the country's newly announced caretaker Cabinet, stating that it has close ties with the centrist-right GERB government, which resigned in February.

"Everything suggests that the caretaker Cabinet is a Cabinet of Boyko Borisov's Deputy Ministers," Mestan told reporters on Tuesday, referring to the country's outgoing Prime Minister.

Mestan noted that caretaker Prime Minister Marin Raykov is a former deputy Foreign Minister in the governments of Prime Minister Ivan Kostov (1997-2001) and Borisov (2009-2013).

The leader of the ethnic Turkish Movement for Rights and Freedoms party also claimed that caretaker Interior Minister Petya Parvanova was affiliated with GERB.

The caretaker government was appointed by President Rosen Plevneliev on Tuesday. It will remain in power until the May 12 elections.
