In this sense, the proposal presented by the conservative populist opposition achieved the approval of 123 members of Parliament out of a total of 240 seats in the legislature.
It is worth pointing out that among the coalitions that approved the motion is the anti-system populist party There is Such a People (ITN), led by Slavi Trifonov, who decided on June 8 to withdraw his four government ministers, after accusing Petkov of allegedly embezzlement of public funds.
