Bulgarian president says government must be formed as soon as possible

Bulgarian President Rosen Plevneliev will convene parliament on May 21, in an attempt to have a government formed as soon as possible.

Under Bulgarian law, the president must call the assembly within a month of an election. Only then can he ask the largest group – centre-right GERB – to try to form a government.

“The biggest challenge now is to restore the trust of the people, which can only happen through a working parliament and government,” Plevneliev said on Friday, after talks with leaders of the four parties which will be represented in the assembly.
