Bulgarian PM to quit if parliament backs plan to change constitution

The Bulgarian prime minister said on Friday he would resign if parliament approved his plans to call elections for a grand national assembly to change the constitution.

Boyko Borisov says he wants to improve the accountability of the judiciary and halve the number of lawmakers.

Two-thirds of Bulgaria’s 240 deputies need to vote to approve calling an election for a grand national assembly.

Borisov, who has been under pressure from daily anti-government protests since early July, said such changes would help restart the country and overhaul its political system.
