Bulgarian PM Borisov tenders his government resignation

SOFIA, Nov 14 (Reuters) - Bulgarian Prime Minister Boiko Borisov has sumbitted his minority government’s resignation to parliament, the government’s press office said in a statement on Monday.

Borisov said on Sunday he would resign after his centre-right party’s candidate lost the race to become the Balkan country’s next president.

“In his letter to the lawmakers, the prime minister stated that the government will continue to perform its duties until the election of a new government,” the statement said.

The collapse of Borisov’s government is likely to result in months of political uncertainty and probably trigger early elections in the spring. (Reporting by Angel Krasimirov; Editing by Catherine Evans)
