"We are not a quorum party. I am not responsible for either the Movement for Rights and Freedoms (MRF) or Peevski. GERB make independent decisions. At GERB, we do not provide a quorum to those who decided to quit the government just because of oil."
This is what GERB leader Boyko Borisov said after today's plenary session of the National Assembly failed due to lack of quorum. The vote of no confidence in the cabinet will not be re-voted either, reported BGNES.
We and the MRF acted together when the Republic of Macedonia had to be accepted, when armored personnel carriers and S-300 missiles had to be given to Ukraine, when the nuclear fuel for the Kozloduy Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) had to be changed, Borisov added.
The leader of GERB was once again adamant that the head of the Bulgarian Football Union, Borislav Mihailov, should immediately resign.
According to him, after last night's pogrom in the center of Sofia, it is not the interior minister, as requested by "We Continue the Change - Democratic Bulgaria" (WCC-DB), but the sports minister who should resign.
"The sports minister should resign because he was fueling the tension for several days", said Borisov.
According to Borisov, WCC-DB are ready for the government to fall because of Lukoil (editor's note: Russian oil refinery in Bulgaria).
"How is it that because of this oil waste and this money, they are clearly ready for the government to fall, they are ready to unite with the supposed opposition parties - "Revival" political party, "There is Such People" political party and Bulgarian Socialist Party and that it is more important than the government", asked Borisov.
"Lukoil" is a private company directly subordinate to the Kremlin and the money goes there. I hope it becomes clear that violations have been committed. Delyan Dobrev is in Washington to tell and show what we are talking about here. The question is not which minister should resign, but why it is so important, he pointed out. /BGNES
