Tsetska Tsacheva, the main ruling GERB party's presidential candidate, has said she is ready to stand down as Parliament Speaker and even leave Parliament if there is agreement within the party.

Tsacheva has made the comment after exit polls prescribed a resounding victory of her opponent, socialist-backed candidate Rumen Radev.

"I have enough self-criticism to admit the fault is mine," she has said, but has urged patience until the party discusses election results.

Her words follow a statement by Bulgaria's Prime Minister Boyko Borisov, who says he will step down next week, paving the way for either a new government or an early election.
