Bulgarian Prime Minister Boiko Borisov announced this Friday that he will not table the resignation that his country’s protesters are demanding so much when parliament appoints a new constitutional assembly with sufficient powers to make the changes he has requested in the judiciary enforce his party Citizens for European Development in Bulgaria (GERB).

Borisov therefore insists on one of the first concessions he offered to thousands of protesters who have been calling since July 9 for the end of the current ruling coalition, which has been in power since 2017 and with seven months left before the March elections.

In a televised address, Borisov made it clear that he would not make any decisions about his future until parliament decides on the composition of this new assembly.
