Ugly scandals marked the first working day in Parliament after the election of a new regular cabinet in Bulgaria. One of the parties stated that he was not there to work, but to prevent others from working.

The main protagonists were again the deputies from "Vazrazhdane", who went to the parliamentary rostrum when the MP from PP-DB Yavor Bojankov came to it.

This happened after the vote on whether Delyan Peevski should become part of the Committee on Constitutional Affairs. This was done with 109 votes in favour. The support came from GERB - UDF, DPS and ITN.

"Against" voted PP-DB and BSP.

Vazrazhdane was in the hall, however, did not participate in the vote and thus helped Peevski's choice by "playing with the quorum".

Bojankov wanted to explain his vote "against" Peevski's appointment, but Vazrazhdane jumped and did not allow the MP to speak.

"The talks that were held with "Vazrazhdane" all the time they said: Look at the PP and DB will support the proposal of DPS. They saw that we did not support and they did not vote. Why - with the lack of their votes, the result is Peevski to be part of the committee."

"We are here in the Bulgarian Parliament, every member of parliament is here with the votes of the Bulgarian citizens. No one has the right to censor the expression of a Bulgarian MP," Petkov told reporters after leaving Kostadinov's room.
