Bulgarian parl’t formally approves caretaker govt to run country until elections

SOFIA  – Bulgaria’s parliament on Tuesday formally approved an interim government to run the EU member country until snap parliamentary and regular European Parliament elections on June 9, ABC News reported.

Dimitar Glavchev, 60, was sworn in as interim prime minister in a ceremony at the National Assembly, where his ministers were also taking the oath of office.

Glavchev said the ministers he selected for his interim Cabinet are “equally distant from all political parties.”

The move comes after the two largest political groups — GERB and reformists led by We Continue the Change — failed to find common ground to continue their uneasy coalition after nine months in office.

The coalition’s collapse in March helped pave the way toward a snap parliamentary election, the sixth since April 2021, which is expected to deepen the political crisis and put on hold key reforms.
