Not another new government in Sofia

For more than forty days now demonstrators in Bulgaria have been demanding the resignation of the new government and snap elections. That would really be too many changes of government in the space of a year, protests the daily 24 Chasa: "For the first time in our recent history people are demonstrating against the entire political class. … This is an extremely dangerous situation because we are a European country where the parties are supposed to do the politics, not a citizens' assembly. ... If the government resigns and new elections are held this would mean changing our government for the fifth time in one year - starting with Borisov's Gerb government, which lasted until February, followed by Marin Raykov's caretaker government, Plamen Oresharksi's government and then another caretaker government until the next elected one was installed. Five governments within a year in a country that doesn't have a clue what it's doing anyway - it might get us into the Guinness Book of Records, but that's about it."
