The Bulgarian opposition insists on supporting the budgets presented by Petkov despite the motion of censure

June 23 (EUROPA PRESS) –

The leader of the Bulgarian opposition and former Prime Minister of the country, Boyko Borisov, has urged the deputies of his formation Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria, known as GERB, to vote in favor of the budgets of the Government of Kiril Petkov despite the fact that the motion of censure against the Executive went ahead.

Borisov has stated that although the proposals of the deputies of the formation are not accepted by the chamber, the budgets must go ahead in an attempt to avoid criticism after what many consider to be an obstacle to the social policies of the now former Government.

Thus, he stressed that the main priorities for the deputies are the approval of the budgets and the proposal of the French Presidency of the Council of the European Union to unblock the path of North Macedonia and Albania towards accession to the EU.

In addition, he has asked the outgoing authorities to carry out this proposal in Parliament, according to information from the ‘Dnevnik’ newspaper. “I thank my friend, President Emmanuel Macron, for making that proposal,” he said.

“Today we hear words from the Prime Minister again saying that this is unlikely. (…) Let them enter Parliament, make the proposal, believe that success is theirs…”, he stated.

This same Thursday, Petkov has criticized the president, Rumen Radev, for his position against the French proposal and has urged to convene a meeting of the National Security Advisory Council to address the matter. “The masks have fallen, I’m tired of cowards,” he said.
