Bulgarian President calls on government and prosecutor general to resign



SOFIA, July 15.  Bulgarian President Rumen Radev made an appeal to the nation on Wednesday, in which he stated the need to restart the political process through the resignation of the government and the country's chief prosecutor.

"Today's oligarchic model of governance has been exhausted and rejected by people. Restarting the political process and modernizing the country should go through the resignation of the government, the chief prosecutor and the holding of fair elections," said Radev.

The head of state drew attention to the country's mobilization in the fight against the mafia, the decisiveness with which the people intend to fight corruption, to the fact that the protest is national and unites citizens of different ages and social circles.

The President called for the peaceful nature of the protests and not give in to provocations, and the police to avoid violence.

According to the B-tv channel, the leadership of the ruling Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria (GERB) party is discussing four options for overcoming the crisis. The first opportunity is the immediate resignation of the government and early elections, but the GERB is worried about a possible revanchism from the official government, which, in accordance with the constitution, should be appointed by the country's president. The second option is the formation of a new government with the mandate of the coat of arms, which will govern until the spring parliamentary elections. Third - Prime Minister Boyko Borisov goes on vacation, new ministers are appointed to the government, who will be managed by deputy prime ministers. Fourth, after the parliament’s vote of no confidence in the government, submitted by the opposition on Wednesday, Borisov asks for a vote of confidence,

As expected, Borisov will make the final decision on ways out of the crisis after returning from Brussels, where the European Council will meet this week.

Meanwhile, on the “triangle of power” between the buildings of the administration of the president’s government and parliament, for the seventh day in a row, mass protests were held demanding the resignation of the government and the chief prosecutor of the republic, traffic in central Sofia was blocked.
