Hristina Hristova resigned from the position of chair of liberal Bulgarian party National Movement for Stability and Prosperity, together with the other members of the party's leadership.
They cited unsatisfactory results at May 12 early general elections as a decision for their move.
The Movement, in coalition with Freedom and Dignity People's Party led by Kasim Dal, received 1.63% of the vote, well below the 4% hurdle.
"The results we achieved at elections were significantly below what we expected. That is why we are filing our resignations at today's council of the party," stated Hristova together with other NMSP leaders.
The party's political board further adopted a delcaration on the current situation in Bulgaria, which has been marked by continuing political instability and ecnomic stagnation.
"There is one word that can describe the situation in Bulgaria - "crisis". This is a crisis of trust in the state, in institutions, in politicians," said the liberals.
They further recommend a swift and competent revision of electoral legislation, an adoption of efficient anti-cartel measures, and the calling of early elections.
The National Movement for Stability and Prosperity was Bulgaria's ruling party 2001-5, the term of the cabinet of former NMSP leader and ex Bulgarian Tsar Simeon Saxe-Coburg.
The Movement was also a junior member of the tripartite coalition that ruled Bulgaria 2005-9, but failed to enter parliament after general elections in July 2009,
