by Cristian Florescu

Bulgaria’s National Assembly voted the quadripartite coalition government headed by Prime Minister Kiril Petkov into office, last week, on December 13, write sofiaglobe.com

The vote came just less than a month after Bulgaria’s November 14 early parliamentary elections, and 10 days after the 47th National Assembly held its first sitting.

Petkov and the coalition Cabinet, the proposed line-up of which was announced on December 11, were voted into office with the support of the groups represented in the coalition – his We Continue the Change (WCC) party – which won the largest share of votes on November 14 – and the Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP), cable television presenter Slavi Trifonov’s ITN party and the Democratic Bulgaria coalition.

The votes, for Petkov as Prime Minister, the structure of the Cabinet and the personnel, respectively, were in all three cases 134 in favour, 104 against, with no abstentions.
