The Deputy Chairman of Bulgaria's opposition party GERB, Tsvetan Tsvetanov has firmly ruled out a future coalition with the Socialists and the Liberals.

Speaking at a seminar before the Plovdiv leadership of his center-right, formerly-ruling party Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria, GERB, he has said a coalition with the left-wing Bulgarian Socialist Party, BSP, and the liberal, predominantly ethnic Turkish Movement for Rights and Freedoms, DPS was totally unacceptable.

Tsvetanov, who is a former Deputy Prime Minister and Interior Minister in the GERB Cabinet, has informed the party will rather seek allies on the right and in the ranks of the Reformist Bloc.

According to him, in order to effectively counter the populist actions of BSP and DPS, GERB together with other right-wing parties, members of the European People's Party, EPP, must reinstate, during the next parliamentary term, the European perspective of Bulgaria.

"In order to liberate Bulgaria from the vicious rule of BSP and DPS we need to activate a maximum number of people on the right, with rightist thinking, who will create the possibility of establishing a right-wing rule after the elections. GERB is the only strong opponent of the current rulers," Tsvetanov, cited by dariknews.bg, has said.
