In the wake of his February 20 resignation, Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov has been "absolved of all responsibility", remarks the Bulgarian daily. On February 21, Borisov met with a crowd of supporters on the steps of the parliament just after the vote by the MPs accepting the resignation of his government.
"His resignation is becoming a campaign issue," says the paper, referring to legislative elections that were scheduled for July but which will probably now be brought forward to a date this spring.
Electioneering had already begun, when President Rossen Plevneliev announced "the opening of discussions" to form a caretaker government that will take charge of current business until the vote held.
