For yet another day, the Bulgarian Parliament failed start work Friday due to lack of quorum.
113 Members of the Parliament registered in plenary hall while the required minimum is 120 of a total of 240.
Lawmakers from the formerly-ruling, opposition center-right Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria party, GERB, did not register once again, prompting Parliament Speaker Mihail Mikov to announce the parliamentary session will not be held Friday and to adjourn the MPs, Nova TV reports.
According to the adopted agenda, the session was supposed to begin with the so-called parliamentary control where ministers from the Cabinet respond to MPs' questions.
Interior Minister, Tsvetlin Yovchev, was scheduled to report on the unauthorized use and storage of surveillance devices and wiretapping of citizens during the term of his predecessor in the GERB Cabinet, Tsvetan Tsvetanov. Yovchev was also to explain if police have any evidence of death threats against Tsvetanov.
