      President gives mandate to TISP, they return it

      President Rumen Radev gave a second party, There is Such a People (TISP), mandate to form a cabinet. It was officially received by chess player Antoaneta Stefanova, who several days earlier was tabbed by TISP and its leader Stanislav Trifonov as the party's nominee for premier. Back then, Trifonov said that Stefanova would receive the mandate only to immediately return it because TISP did not intend to try to form a cabinet. The reason - the party lacked sufficient support in the new National Assembly.
