In the final hours as Bulgaria awaited Boiko Borissov’s announcement of his cabinet, the current Government gathered on July 23 2009 for its final scheduled meeting.
Yane Yanev says his party will support Boiko Borissov’s government for six months, but is withdrawing from a meeting with GERB planned for July 20 2009. Yanev’s party is refusing to sign GERB’s proposed memorandum of support for the new government, which Yanev says is ‘not a European document’.
Having decided not to draw other parties into a governing coalition, GERB leader and prime minister-to-be Boiko Borissov says that only members of his party will be in his cabinet – in spite of an earlier statement that ‘experts’ from other parties could be tapped for government service.
As Bulgaria waits for prime-minister-to-be Boiko Borissov to announce his cabinet, media reports speculate about the changes he will make to ministries and key personnel.
