Parliament to Debate PM Denkov’s Resignation

At its plenary sitting on Wednesday, Bulgaria’s National Assembly is to debate a draft resolution accepting the resignation of Prime Minister Nikolay Denkov. He tendered his resignation on Tuesday afternoon.
This move is based on an arrangement between the two largest groups in Parliament, Continue the Change – Democratic Bulgaria (CC-DB) and GERB-UDF, according to which Denkov and Mariya Gabriel of GERB-UDF were to rotate as prime minister and deputy prime minister over a nine-month period, starting with Denkov. Subject to this understanding, the two parliamentary coalitions plus the Movement for Rights and Freedoms (MRF) voted the Denkov Cabinet into office on June 6, 2023. The rotation was due to take place on March 6, 2024.
The firs item on Parliament’s agenda was moved by the CC-DB Parliamentary Group.
