The real desire of GERB-UDF is to form a government with the second political force (Continue the change - Democratic Bulgaria), regardless of on whose mandate this happens, Vice President Iliana Iotova told journalists here Saturday.

"I have the feeling that the so-called "plan B" is not so much about support from the other parliamentary parties, political forces, as it is about some kind of dialogue on forming a government with the second [government-forming] mandate, she said. 

In her words, it is very incorrect for the other political parties "to be quoted by the first and the second political force only as parties, donors of votes". It seems as if no one asks them what their priorities are, policies and how they can make governance programmes, Iotova noted and added: "The rest of the talks seem formal from the side."

The Vice President noted that since May 12, there is a new situation in the country, besides the candidate for prime minister, the resignation of the Prosecutor General was also demanded by part of the Supreme Judicial Council. From now on the procedure is in their hands, Iotova said.

“Two arguments are important for me. The first one is that this resignation and its very quick vote should not cover up the case of the so-called assassination [attempt], because the truth must come out, these answers are owed to us, the Bulgarian citizens, as well as to our European partners, because this case echoed in the EU. Bulgaria's name must be cleared”, Iotova added. 

She said she hoped the resignation would not serve to stop with the judicial reforms.
