Political stability will remain under strain after a snap poll in October 2014 in which the centre-right Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria (CEDB) came first but fell well short of an outright majority.

The new ruling coalition, comprising the CEDB and the centre-right Reformist Bloc (RB), depends for its parliamentary majority on the support of the nationalist Patriotic Front (PF) and the centre-left Alternative for Bulgarian Revival (ABR). Given the differences in outlook between the parties and the potential for serious disagreement over policy, the government may not be able serve out its full four-year term.

The ruling coalition has embarked on a policy of fiscal consolidation, but it will not pursue expenditure cuts at the same pace as the previous CEDB government, in order to avoid the mass protests that led to that government's resignation in early 2013. The new government will also promote economic growth, relaunch privatisations and improve the business environment.
