Parliament Chair Mihail Mikov has voiced readiness to call an extraordinary sitting of parliament on Tuesday to vote on the new government panel headed by Prime Minister Plamen Oresharski.

"I am ready to call an extraordinary parliament sitting, if necessary," Mikov stated Sunday in an interview for the Bulgarian National Radio (BNR).

He suggested that there was no reason to obstruct the formation of a cabinet, thereby putting an end to speculations about the names of the new ministers.

Mikov said he was ready to promptly follow the steps included in the constitutional procedure for forming a new government.

On May 23, Bulgarian President Rosen Plevneliev handed the mandate to form a new government to BSP, the party which ranked second at the May general 12 elections, after the winner, center-right party Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria (GERB) refused to do so.

Plevneliev handed the mandate to Plamen Oresharski, a non-partisan former Finance Minister endorsed for PM by BSP leader and PES president Sergey Stanishev.

BSP's Prime Ministerial candidate made clear Sunday that the names of the ministerial nominees would be officially announced Monday.
