The cur­rent term of the Bul­gar­i­an Par­lia­ment will end on 6 August, Pres­i­dent Rosen Plev­ne­liev said in a state­ment fol­low­ing con­sul­ta­tions on 29 June with Prime Min­is­ter Pla­men Ore­shar­ski, par­lia­men­ta­ry speak­er Mihail Mikov, and the lead­ers of the polit­i­cal par­ties rep­re­sent­ed in the nation­al and Euro­pe­an Par­lia­ment (Boyko Bor­is­ov, Ser­gei Stan­ish­ev, Lyut­vi Mes­tan, Niko­lay Bare­kov, Megle­na Kune­va and Radan Kan­ev), as well as BNB Gov­ern­or Ivan Isk­rov. "It is impos­si­ble to form anoth­er gov­ern­ment with­in the man­date of the 42nd Nation­al Assem­bly. There­fore, the par­lia­ment will be dis­band­ed on 6 August.

"It is impos­si­ble to form anoth­er gov­ern­ment with­in the man­date of the 42nd Nation­al Assem­bly. There­fore, the par­lia­ment will be dis­band­ed on 6 August. The cab­i­net of min­is­ters will resign in com­pli­ance with the coun­try's Con­sti­tu­tion," the Bul­gar­i­an head of state said sum­ma­ris­ing the con­sen­sus plan of action. The meet­ing last­ed near­ly 5 hours and was boy­cott­ed only by the MPs of Ata­ka polit­i­cal par­ty, but the par­tic­i­pants reit­er­at­ed the agree­ment reached in pre­vi­ous talks to hold gen­er­al elec­tions on 5 Octo­ber. Rosen Plev­ne­liev will assume the respon­si­bil­i­ty to appoint a pro­vi­sion­al gov­ern­ment aft­er anoth­er round of con­sul­ta­tions with the polit­i­cal lead­ers.

Pri­or to the talks, the incum­bent gov­ern­ment led by Pla­men Ore­shar­ski will have to resign, which is expect­ed to hap­pen by 25 July.

The par­tic­i­pants in the polit­i­cal con­sul­ta­tions declared their com­mit­ment to mobil­ise the nec­es­sa­ry resour­ces and to imple­ment all meas­ures that will guar­an­tee the sta­bil­i­ty of the coun­try's bank­ing sys­tem.  

"The mon­ey of the cit­i­zens and the com­pa­nies is safe. The banks will con­tin­ue oper­at­ing under nor­mal cir­cum­stan­ces. The Cur­ren­cy Board is unshak­a­ble and will be pre­served," was the pres­i­dent's stead­fast stand aft­er the meet­ing. In his words, what was hap­pen­ing was not a bank­ing cri­sis, but rath­er a crim­i­nal attack. That was the rea­son why par­ties and insti­tu­tions had insist­ed on swift and steady actions against the peo­ple who cre­at­ed pan­ic and the ones who had giv­en the orders.
