Bulgarian ruling party opens way for early election
BUCHAREST Feb 20 (Reuters) - Bulgaria's governing GERB party will not take part in talks to form a new government, Interior Minister Tsvetan Tsvetanov said on Wednesday, indicating the Balkan country will hold an early election.
Prime Minister Boiko Borisov's centre-right GERB is the dominant faction in parliament and if no group can form a majority, a planned election in July will be brought forward.
"GERB will not take part in consultations for the new government," Tsvetanov told reporters.
