Bulgarian Minister of Energy Alexander Nikolov resigned today, along with the other Ministers from the “There Is Such a People” party.

There resignations are a result of the party head Slavi Trifonov’s decision to withdraw the party from the ruling coalition.

The statement from the Ministry said that the reasons for Minister Nikolov’s resignation from the government are purely political. Alexander Nikolov will continue to perform his constitutional duties until the election of his successor.

The resignations are to be accepted by the Prime Minister, and he will submit them for voting in the National Assembly. The Prime Minister then nominates whom he appoints to head the four ministries. There are no deadlines for this procedure and the release of ministers may be delayed.
