Negotiations for the Formation of a Government in Bulgaria: An Update on the Political Situation and Potential Impacts
The political stalemate in Bulgaria has been reignited as negotiations for the formation of a government between the We Continue the Change (WCC-DB) and Gerb-SDS coalitions intensify. With both sides presenting nominees for the position of prime minister, the outcome of the negotiations will impact the country’s political future. However, GERB has been vocal about its reluctance to support any coalition reliant on the votes of the Movement for Rights and Freedoms (MRF), creating a political deadlock. Key figures, such as Mariya Gabriel, are seen as instrumental in finding a way forward, as Bulgaria navigates significant challenges around corruption, political stability, and economic recovery.
