Political stability will remain under strain following the formation at end-May 2013 of a ruling coalition comprising the Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP) and the Movement for Rights and Freedoms (MRF), representing mainly ethnic Turks.

The government lacks an outright majority and relies on the tacit support of the far-right Ataka party to provide a quorum. In the wake of the European election on May 25th 2014, in which the BSP was convincingly beaten by the main opposition party, the centre-right Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria (CEDB), the MRF has called for talks about holding a pre-term election.

The government will continue to preside over a change of policy emphasis. It is expected to prioritise tackling unemployment, promoting economic growth and improving the business environment without, however, putting at risk the country's prized fiscal stability.
