(ANSA) - SOFIA, 02 AGO - In Bulgaria, President Rumen Radev has decreed the dissolution of parliament and the 47th legislature, officially setting the date for new elections for Oct. 2. Radev at the same time appointed an interim government to take the country to an early vote. The interim executive, which will be headed by Galab Donev (55, economics graduate), presidential adviser for social policies and health, will be unveiled tomorrow at an official ceremony in the presidential palace. The parliamentary crisis and new elections, the fourth in Bulgaria since April last year, came after a vote of no-confidence and the resignation of the coalition government led by Kiril Petkov, leader of the liberal party 'Let's Continue the Change' (Pp), who remained at the helm of the country for just over seven months. Three failed attempts to form a new government within the same unicameral parliament (240 seats) followed. One after the other, the Cc, the largest parliamentary force, followed by the opposition conservative party Gerb and the Socialist Party (Bsp) in a governing coalition, put back the mandate. (ANSA).
