Bulgarian Prime Minister Boiko Borissov’s GERB party, majority partner in the coalition cabinet, has said it will press ahead with reforms in 2016 to act against crime and corruption, and will reach out to opposition parties in a bid to build consensus on legislation.

Speaking at the year’s opening sitting of the National Assembly on January 13, GERB parliamentary group leader Tsvetan Tsvetanov said that the party intends to bring reforms to a conclusion, together with its partners and it would seek like-minded people “among the sober-minded part of the opposition”.

“I wish to believe that we will implement reforms that are planned to ensure the stability that is needed for business and citizens,” Tsvetanov said.
