Parliament did not have a quorum in the third attempt to start a second extraordinary sitting on Tuesday. A total of 118 MPs from GERB-UDF, the Movement for Rights and Freedoms (MRF), BSP for Bulgaria and These Is Such a People registered in the hall, as well as two independent MPs.

There is no quorum, there will be no meeting, said Deputy National Assembly Chair Rositsa Kirova, after the third attempt at registration. Previously, in the first attempt, there were 111 MPs in the hall, and in the second - 117.

The agenda of the meeting provided for a hearing of Deputy Minister of Energy and Energy and Water Regulatory Commission Chair Ivan Ivanov in connection with a possible increase in the price of electricity.

Earlier on Tuesday, the MPs gathered at an extraordinary meeting in connection with the pension update from July 1. Later in the day, GERB-UDF and MRF collected signatures and filed a request for an extraordinary meeting  in connection with the price of electricity.
