Bulgaria: Borissov proposes Daniel Mitov for Prime Minister

Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borissov nominated former Foreign Minister Daniel Mitov as Prime Minister. Borissov announced his proposal live on Facebook. “We will tell the cabinet when we receive the mandate,” Borissov added. “I will wait, I will watch, I will help and if necessary I will intervene,” he said.

“Now I will resign as Prime Minister and Member of Parliament, and let’s see if they forget Boyko Borissov. Vladi Goranov will stay with me at the HQs,” Borissov said.

“I want you to be very responsible,” Borissov called on his party members, urging them to “table majority elections even tomorrow.” The new faces are the forgotten old ones, Borissov said.

“The Bulgarian people showed great wisdom. Slavi Trifonov is undoubtedly the most successful in showbiz, he made his business profitable, but now he’s in a different league, here we need bold and quick decisions. It is not managed by proxy, but by the personal responsibility of the leader. We will tell the Council of Ministers when we receive the mandate. I will wait, I will watch, I will help and if necessary, I will intervene. These people have behaved so awfully during these months, so vile, so yellow page-like, so personal and disgusting to my family and home. No matter how much they say I’m old, I do not advise them to challenge me,” Borissov said.

Daniel Mitov, 43, was born in Sofia and studied at Sofia University. He served as Minister of Foreign Affairs of Bulgaria from 6 August 2014 until 27 January 2017. /ibna
