Former Bulgarian Premier Boyko Borissov’s party proposed a cabinet that has little chance of acceptance, further deepening a political crisis that may result in another snap election.

Borissov won an inconclusive election in October — the fourth in 18 months — with his Gerb party falling short of a majority. He proposed Nikolay Gabrovski, a professor and neurosurgeon, for prime minister.
