There was a lack of quorum

The extraordinary sitting of Bulgaria’s National Assembly expected on Thursday has failed due to the lack of quorum. Only 78 MPs appeared at the plenary hall.

The National Assembly had to oblige the government to submit an amendment to the state budget due to the social and economic measures against COVID-19 crisis.

Meanwhile protesters gathered in front of the building. They threw eggs and tomatoes at the MPs and shouted “Resignation”.
