Bulgaria's Council of Ministers postponed its sitting on Thursday, as outgoing Prime Minister Boyko Borisov is still recovering from his hypertensive crisis.
The Council of Ministers meeting is now expected to take place on Friday. It was initially scheduled for Wednesday, but the Prime Minister's condition has postponed it two times already.
On Wednesday, medics advised Borisov to remain in hospital. It was made clear that the Prime Minister has myocardial hypertrophy.
Borisov has checked in the hospital around 5 pm Monday with a hypertensive crisis. He had a blood pressure of 190/110.
Doctors put him on medications to normalize his blood pressure and advised him to stay in the hospital for a couple of days so that they can monitor his condition.
Borisov and his GERB government resigned last week amidst mass protest rallies against unbearable utility bills and wide-spread poverty that turned into a civil unrest against the political model of ruling the country.
