Bulgaria's GERB Party To Nominate Ex-Foreign Minister For PM.

Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov says that his GERB party will nominate Daniel Mitov , a former foreign minister, to lead the government it will try to form after the April 4 election.
"I am choosing Daniel Mitov, because I want very clearly to underline our pro-European and pro-NATO position," Borisov told GERB lawmakers in a live streaming on his Facebook page on April 14. Borisov, who has dominated the Balkan country's politics since 2009, said he would also quit his seat as a lawmaker in the new parliament to focus on his center-right party.

The pro-Western Mitov was minister of foreign affairs from 2014 to 2017.
GERB won 75 seats in the 240-seats parliament. All the other political parties have refused to support GERB, so it is most likely that it will fail to form the government.
