Scores of Bulgarians are protesting once again Friday near the home of former Prime Minister, Boyko Borisov, in the Sofia suburb of Bankya.

They are shouting under his windows demands for him and for the MPs from the Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria party, GERB, to return to the Parliament and do their job after they decided to boycott all sittings except those focusing on the Election Code.

The demonstrators see the above as sabotage because to them the MPs must be in plenary hall to vote on important legislation such as the increase of the minimum monthly wage, the reversing of the law on increased retirement age, and the Election Code amendments.

"We have plenty to say to Borisov. We can tell him that we cannot travel on the highways he focused on building because we have no money to put fuel in our cars; we have no jobs; we have parents and children counting on us to survive, but he is hiding from us. He appears only when it is convenient for him and says convenient things. We want jobs," one of the protesters is quoted in saying.

Others have also stressed they will wait for Borisov to come out to tell him what they have to tell him.

Borisov and his GERB government resigned back in February amidst mass protests against stagnation, poverty and corruption.
