The leader of the opposition, center-right Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria party, GERB, Boyko Borisov, has made an U-turn on the decision to table a third non-confidence motion against the government.

Just on Wednesday, Borisov announced that his formerly-ruling GERB would submit as early as Friday a third motion over failures in the culture sector policy.

However, on Thursday, he gave up on both – the motive and the date to table it.

Speaking the Parliament's hallway, after GERB's second no-confidence motion over failures in infrastructure projects and regional development was rejected, Borisov told reporters his party has decided to wait for several days before making a new move.

He explained that the Socialist-led government was providing so many motives over so many failures that GERB needed time to decide on just one, since different senior members have proposed different ideas.

He also claimed that the 2nd no-confidence vote against the government had achieved its objectives because it made it clearer to Bulgarians that the current government was detrimental for the nation and that it cannot function without Ataka (the ultra-nationalist party).
