“No, the DPS are not part of the assembly. As long as the DPS support our priorities, we cannot be angry with them for their PR. If they decided, supporting our priorities for the rule of law, to take it as some kind of PR credit and speak out every day, that’s their right. From our point of view, we’re just trying to see that our priorities that we’ve set are followed.”
This is what Kiril Petkov, the co-chairman of “Continuing the change” replied to a question in the morning block of “Nova TV” whether DPS is part of the “assembly” (the joint management between “Continuing the change – Democratic Bulgaria” and GERB). He added that October 6 should be the first vote on the changes to the constitution. “What we see as a request from DPS is that they support these reforms. Why, how and what – these are questions for them,” he noted.

To the presenter’s note, that it would be PR if they did not work together with the DPS, but “We continue the change – Democratic Bulgaria” work together with them and that everyone remembers how harsh criticism the coalition and the two formations have made separately against Ahmed Dogan’s party, Petkov said that “unfortunately, this is how the regulations were made, that when you need 160 deputies, you must have 160 deputies if we want to carry out the reform that we have so much been dreaming about in the judiciary”. This number of deputies is needed as a minimum to pass the proposals for changes in the constitution.
Asked what the role of DPS is in management, Petkov commented that “from the very beginning there is a great closeness between GERB and DPS, this is obvious to everyone”.
