A protest organised by the "Vazrazhdane" party blocked the "Tsar Osvoboditel" boulevard in front of the parliament. The protesters are dissatisfied with the creation of the "Denkov-Gabriel" cabinet. According to "Vazrazhdane", 14 of the ministers in the draft cabinet were connected to the USA.

If the government receives approval, we will withdraw the current version of the budget and I hope that within 2 weeks we will have a version of the budget with a 3% deficit, Assen Vassilev, who is a candidate for finance minister, said. According to Vassilev, in order to reduce the deficit, revenues will be increased and expenses will be limited. He said that Bulgaria joining the Eurozone in 2025 was still a realistic goal.
