Followers of Bulgaria's Socialist-endorsed Cabinet have suffered a rift and split in two groups regarding their support petitions.

The civil initiative "For New Public Order" staged Tuesday morning a march, which started at 10:30 am from the park near the Military Club in Sofia to the building of the Council of Ministries where they handed the petition with 260 000 signatures to Prime Minister, Plamen Oresharski.

"For New Public Order" are also planning to mount 28 mail boxes in the 28th regional centers of Bulgaria to collect additional signatures. They brag the 260 000 ones have been collected in less than 20 days.

The initiative has set the goal of making possible by the end of the calendar year a round table to debate citizens' demands with experts from the government, the ministries, and the Parliament.

Their main slogan is: "Oresharski Do Your Job!"

The other supporters of the Cabinet, who are staging daily rallies in the park of the National Palace of Culture, NDK, say they are not part of the initiative; will not join it, and have their own petition with 370 000 signatures, which they will also hand to Oresharski, but with CC to the Parliament and the Office of the President.

Meanwhile, other Bulgarians plan to take once again to the streets of the capital Sofia Tuesday eveining to demand the resignation of the country's government for a 47th day in a row.
