Wanted: Bulgaria's Next PM

Wanted: man of honor, good at economics, preferably not a former communist, no record of covering up mafia and shady deals, deeply patriotic and tough as old boots.

It is a lot to ask, but that is the emerging profile of the man many Bulgarians want to see as their next prime minister.

His name however is one big question mark.

If the political turmoil turns into a full-blown political crisis Bulgaria may move to a Greek scenario.

That means Bulgarians may be forced to return to the polls at the beginning of September if parties fail to agree a government after the snap election on 12 May.

The political uncertainty will give the caretaker government more than two months of tenure and people will come to love it.

It is an open question whether a new political force, much needed, will emerge on the scene.

It is also an open question whether Boyko Borisov's party will continue to recover its lead over the Socialists, lost during the protests and currently at 1%.

Will he once again loom on the horizon as the solid rock people can rely on amid the turbulent waters of global markets and the shattered trust in Brussels?
