Today's plenary session has been canceled due to a lack of quorum as Bulgaria's opposition party GERB refused to register in Parliament.

A total of 95 MPs from Bulgaria's Socialist Party (BSP) and from the Movement for Rights and Freedoms (DPS) have attended Thursday's session. Parliament Speaker Mihail Mikov has scheduled the next hearing for Friday.

Both nationalist Ataka party and opposition GERB have refused to work within the current national assembly.

Leader of GERB Boyko Borisov announced that the party MPs will not attend sessions anymore until parliament is dissolved on August 6, to avoid speculations of working together with DPS, Vesti informs.
