There are many differences between the platforms of the Union of Democratic Forces and of the Simeon II National Movement, Ivan Kostov, Prime Minister and leader of the UDF, said.

For us it is absolutely unacceptable that concepts from the program of the Union of Employers are transcribed in a political party's platform, Kostov added.

This will be 'black capitalism' lacking any social security for the workers. Our platform in the social and labour sphere is totally different, Kostov said.

UDF will be looking for coalition partners among those who support Bulgaria's full membership in the European Union and the NATO alliance, PM Kostov said.
