Deputy Prime Minister Bozo Petrov said on Monday he could not see how his Bridge party could continue cooperating with First Deputy Prime Minister Tomislav Karamarko after they supported the motion for his impeachment.
"If we are in favour of his impeachment, I frankly don't see how we could stay (in the government together). I've said that (Bridge's) National Council will decide on this, but we will hardly lower our criteria," Petrov said in answer to questions from the press in the Parliament building.
He reiterated that the 12 Bridge MPs stood by their decision to vote in favour of Karamarko's impeachment.
Asked if there was a possibility of him resigning from the government and the Bridge ministers staying in, Petrov said: "Hardly."
The Bridge party supports the impeachment motion filed by the strongest opposition Social Democratic Party (SDP) over Karamarko's alleged conflict of interest in the INA-MOL case.
