Prime Minister-designate Gabriel: Bulgaria Needs a Government of Shared Responsibility

Bulgaria needs a government of shared responsibility, said GERB-UDF Prime Minister-designate Mariya Gabriel , at a party briefing on the sidelines of Parliament.Gabriel noted that all the current outgoing ministers have made a commitment for 18 months.
It is their right to refuse, but this can be interpreted in a different way, commented on the refusal of the ministerial nominees to participate in the cabinet.
Their declaration of refusal is a violation of the rotation agreement between GERB-UDF and Continue the Change-Democratic Bulgaria, GERB leader Boyko Borisov noted.
On Tuesday, GERB-UDF Prime Minister-designate Mariya Gabriel handed President Rumen Radev a proposal for a government lineup. She was mandated to form a government Monday noon. In the afternoon, President Radev signed a decree proposing to the 49th National Assembly to elect Mariya Gabriel, the Prime Minister nominated by the largest parliamentary group, GERB-UDF. Later, CC-DB said that the draft cabinet was not agreed with them, and the nominees for ministers from the party stated that they refused to join this composition of the Council of Ministers. The CC-DB called on the President to withdraw his decree. The decree of the President under Art. 99 of the Constitution has nothing to do with the structure and composition of the cabinet, the presidential institution clarified later.
