“This result confirmed categorically that GERB should be the leading ruling party,” Borisov said, adding that GERB would make “utmost efforts” with potential coalition partners to form a government quickly.

GERB won the snap election with between 32.2 percent and 32.8 percent of the vote, exit polls showed.
