Mariya Gabriel, nominated for prime minister by GERB-SDS, met with the leadership of the Movement for Rights and Freedoms (DPS) parliamentary group. GERB leader Boyko Borissov was also present at the meeting.

DPS Chairman Mustafa Karadayi repeated the DPS thesis that a government is needed to lead the country out of the crisis and pointed out that the priorities of GERB and DPS overlap. He wished success to the mandate that GERB-SDS will receive from President Rumen Radev today.

"It is gratifying that what you presented as priorities, Ms. Gabriel, overlap as priorities with the agenda of the Bulgarian citizens, which should become the agenda of the politicians, the National Assembly and the possible regular cabinet. That is why we need a regular cabinet - we have been repeating it for several years now and in every election. Our idea is, without making any assumptions, to go step by step at an accelerated pace for the formation of a majority in the National Assembly that can adopt a budget and take responsibility for this budget," he said.

The chairman of DPS congratulated the largest parliamentary party for the nomination of Mariya Gabriel as Prime Minister.

"In order to solve people's problems, we need investments. Since 2007, the main investments have come from European funds. At the moment, Bulgaria is terribly late with the operational programs, the Recovery and Resilience Plan and the strategic plan for agriculture. Roughly speaking, from about BGN 60 billion, set aside in Brussels for Bulgaria from 2020, not one penny has been used purposefully. Therefore, in our opinion, apart from the fact that the various ministers should be experts in different fields, they should know Brussels well, and not yet learn who is where." Karadayi said.

He pointed out that he understood Gabriel's proposed time frame for a government mandate of one year as a period to test and evaluate what the government had done. Regarding his expertise, Karadayi pointed out that the DPS has experts in various fields.

"We at DPS have the self-confidence to have experts from almost all spheres of social and political life. And not bad experts at that. So, if we come to the situation of looking for experts for the government, we will take our responsible behavior and solve this problem with reason", he pointed out.

The leader of GERB Boyko Borissov, Tomislav Donchev, the chairman of the parliamentary group of GERB-SDS Desislava Atanasova and the chairman of SDS Rumen Hristov also participated in the meeting.

Today at 3:00 p.m., President Rumen Radev will hand over the first exploratory mandate to form a government to the first political force after the elections, GERB-SDS.

Prime Minister nominee Mariya Gabriel will have one week to present the composition and structure of a future government. The cabinet must then be voted on by the National Assembly.

Yesterday it became clear that Gabriel will propose an expert government with a horizon of 1 year. It is not yet clear which political forces will support an expert cabinet. WCC-DB will respond tomorrow.
