Reformist Bloc To Decide on Mandate To Form CabinetDomestic | December 13, 2016, Tuesday // 10:03| views
The executive council of the Reformist Bloc will meet today in order to decide whether the bloc will take advantage of the mandate to form a government which President Rossen Plevneliev will hand over to the formation at 11:00 hrs.
This is the last chance to form a cabinet within the framework of the current parliament before the appointment of a caretaker government.
Last week, the parliamentary group decided that the mandate must be returned. However, according to the leader of SDS Bozhidar Lukarski, the Reformists must try to form a government headed by Boyko Borisov.
After the refusal of GERB and BSP to form a government within the framework of the current Parliament, the Reformist Bloc is the third parliamentary group to receive a survey mandate by the president. If they return it as well, Rossen Plevneliev will have to appoint a caretaker cabinet.
