Borisov Calls on Bulgarian Opposition to Form Interim Govt
Date: 25/02/2013

The outgoing Bulgarian Prime Minister, Boyko Borisov, called on the two main opposition parties to turn politically responsible and form an interim government.

Speaking from the Presidential Office Monday, where he arrived to officially turn down the mandate his center-right Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria, GERB, received for the formation of an interim government, Borisov accused the Bulgarian Socialist Party, BSP and the ethnic Turkish Movement for Rights and Freedoms, DPS, of using poor people to topple his Cabinet by staging a riot.

Last week, Bulgaria's Parliament approved the resignation of the GERB government amidst unprecedented since 1997 protest rallies against unbearable utility bills and wide-spread poverty that turned into a civil unrest against the political model of ruling the country.

The outgoing PM spoke Monday with sarcasm in saying BSP and DPS will have two months in being in an interim government to increase wages and retirement pensions; eliminate cartels, and reduce utility bills.

He stressed if the opposition would accept his proposal, he would guarantee 20 GERB Members of the Parliament to show up for work every day in order to keep the General Assembly functioning.

"The right-wing also wants to have a Parliament. If I give 20 MPs, we can have a total of 101 and a quorum, but this means Ahmed Dogan must show up for work as well," Borisov stated, hinting of the permanent absence of the honorary, life-time DPS Chairman and MP, Ahmed Dogan, from parliamentary sittings.

He also grounded his idea on the country not needing an idle time since the opposition was convinced they will win the upcoming snap election.

Borisov labeled claims of BSP leader and his predecessor, Sergey Stanishev, the country is on the brink of fiscal collapse "stupid non-sense," in insisting he was leaving a fiscally stable State.

"This is the time to see in reality Stanishev's anti-crisis measures. Leftist measures, wherever applied across the world, have failed," said the outgoing country leader.

He noted that in case the President has to appoint a caretaker government, he will have to assign posts to all his advisors, which will cripple the Presidential institution.

Borisov concluded in saying the latest developments in Bulgaria have brought to an end "myths" that he was a dictator, who controlled everything, including the media.

"Some media brutally supported me, without me asking them to do so, or needing it. We now see their true face. I just beg those who protest to stay away from political parties and their attempts to use the rallies for political gains. This is how in 1917 Stalin and the KGB took over the power of people, as later did Hitler in Germany," the PM warned.
