SOFIA (AFP) - Bulgaria’s parliament accepted Thursday the resignation of Prime Minister Boyko Borisov’s government after days of sometimes violent protests against high electricity bills and low wages in the EU’s poorest country. The surprise resignation announced on Wednesday came five months ahead of the scheduled end of the government’s term of office, opening the way for early elections in late April. Days of protests have shaken Bulgaria in the past 10 days. They were first sparked by high electricity bills but soon snowballed into wider anger against deepening poverty and corruption in the small Balkan country.
