Bulgarian PM Borisov said about his government resignation
Bulgarian Prime Minister Boiko Borisov has submitted his minority government's resignation to parliament, Reuters cited the government's press office statement on Monday.
As it became clear on Sunday that his center-right party's candidate lost the race to become the Bulgaria's next president, Borisov said he would resign."In his letter to the lawmakers, the prime minister stated that the government will continue to perform its duties until the election of a new government,"
the statement said.
The collapse of Borisov's government is likely to result in months of political uncertainty and probably trigger early elections in the spring.
Former air force commander Rumen Radev, a political novice, won Sunday's election with about 59% of the vote.
He wants the EU to drop its sanctions on Russia and seeks closer ties with Moscow to help Bulgaria's struggling economy.
