The Socialists ruled with the ethnic Turkish MRF party in a minority coalition, which relied on the outside support of the nationalist Attack party to cling to power and survive repeated no confidence votes while in office. Hundreds gathered in the Bulgarian capital as news of the resignation broke, chanting “victory”, as two lines of police looked on in front of the parliament building.
