Bulgarian President starts consultations on new cabinet.

By bne IntelliNews February 22, 2013
Bulgarian president Rosen Plevneliev will start consultations with political parties on forming a new government under the same parliament today, February 22. Plevneliev said he would hold a joint meeting (instead of separate meetings) with leaders of parliamentary groups in order to clear any doubts about behind the scenes arrangements. On Monday, Feb 25, the president will hand in the mandate to CEDB. If the party returns it, as it said it would do, then it will be passed to the second largest party (BSP). If no party can (or wants to) form a cabinet, the president will appoint an interim government and call early elections.
