Move unlikely to appease protests calling for resignation of entire government amid controversial proposal for new constitution

A protester shouts"Resignation" during an anti-government rally in front of the new National Assembly building, in Sofia, Bulgaria on Thursday, Sept. 3, 2020.Bulgaria’s embattled Prime Minister Boyko Borissov on Thursday replaced the minister of justice, a move that is unlikely to appease protesters calling for nearly two months for the whole government to step down.

Several thousand people faced off against riot police in front of the parliament building late Wednesday, demanding the resignations of the prime minister and the chief prosecutor. Violent clashes erupted, and Sofia Police Chief Georgi Hadjiiski told reporters on Thursday that 80 police officers were injured. He said 126 people were detained, including 62 with criminal records as football hooligans.

Earlier on Wednesday, President Rumen Radev said that the resignation of the prime minister and his Cabinet was the only way out of the political turmoil.
