Bulgaria's outgoing prime minister said that the decision for the forming of a ruling coalition might be taken by next Monday - July 11.

Just a day earlier Prime Minster Simeon Saxe-Coburg, told reporters hurrying could lead to mistakes.

Vote winning Bulgarian Socialist Party, runner-up Simeon II National Movement and the predominantly ethnic Turkish Movement for Rights and Freedoms conferred Wednesday for more than two hours to emerge with no specific decision.

The meeting came amid ten days of consultations among all seven parties and coalitions to form the new government of Bulgaria. Despite winning a 34.17% majority of votes, the Socialists earned only 82 out of 240 seats in the parliament, which has kept them far away from the capacity to form own government.

SIINM has won 53 seats and MRF sends 34 MPs to the 40th parliament of Bulgaria.
