The Justice Minister in Bulgaria's new Cabinet will be a Deputy PM as well, according to Plamen Oresharski, the nomination for Prime Minister of the Bulgarian Socialist Party, BSP.

Oresharski spoke Monday during consultations with the right-wing Bulgaria for Citizens party of former EU Commissioner, Meglena Kuneva.

BSP's Coalition for Bulgaria presented a summary of the so-called "Plan Oresharski" and the priority of the new Cabinet.

The PM nominee explained his government would seek support from parties which did not win parliamentary seats in the 42nd General Assembly in the May 12 general elections.

Representatives of Bulgaria for Citizens joined the socialists in the opinion Bulgaria needs to reinstate institutions and improve the business climate.

Kuneva, however, noted that the issue with the justice system has been omitted in the plan.

BSP leader, Sergey Stanishev, countered that Oresharski was facing too many important tasks to be included in one action plan.

Bulgaria for Citizens further stressed securing a fair election process should be addressed as well.

The names of the members of the new government are expected to be announced Tuesday after BSP and Oresharski received last Thursday the mandate from the President.
