SOFIA, Aug. 5 (Xinhua) -- Bulgarian President Rosen Plevneliev on Tuesday presented a caretaker government whose main task, according to the country’s constitution, is to organize early parliamentary elections on Oct. 5.
Plevneliev said in a statement that the caretaker government, led by Georgi Bliznashki, professor of constitutional law, would take office on Wednesday.
It will replace the Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP) cabinet, led by Plamen Oresharski, that resigned after its supporting party Movement for Rights and Freedoms (MRF) demanded early parliamentary elections in June.
The caretaker government will take significant steps for implementing priorities such as the signing of the partnership agreement with the EU for the period 2014-2020, and start the procedure for entry into the single banking supervisory mechanism of the EU, Plevneliev said.
The government will also begin the creation of an energy board because the situation in the Bulgarian energy sector was critical, he added.
This will be the fourth Bulgarian caretaker government during the last 25 years.
