The former Prime Minister can start his fourth term.

The center-right party Citizens for the European Development of Bulgaria (GERB) won Sunday’s parliamentary elections in Bulgaria, according to the almost final results published on Monday, thus three-time ex-prime minister Boyko Borissov can return to the prime minister’s chair for a fourth term.

Based on the processing of more than 99 percent of the votes, GERB obtained 25.37 percent of the votes. Incumbent Prime Minister Kiril Petkov’s party, Continue the Change (PP), came in second with 20.21 percent of the vote. The government coalition led by the PP failed in a vote of confidence in June, as a result of which Bulgaria was forced to hold early elections for the fourth time in a year and a half. Kiril Petkov previously ruled out joining a coalition with Borisov.

A total of seven parties managed to cross the 4 percent threshold necessary to enter parliament. One of them is the pro-Russian Revival party, which was the smallest party in the previous parliament, but now it finished in fourth place with more than 10 percent of the votes. The members of the previous government coalition fell noticeably: the result of the Bulgarian Socialist Party dropped to 9.32 percent, and the Democratic Bulgaria party dropped to 7.46 percent.

The official results will be announced on Thursday.
