The Council of Ministers ( Bulgarian : Министерски съвет , MINISTERSKI savet ) is the main authority of the executive power in the Republic of Bulgaria . It consists of the Prime Minister of Bulgaria and all the specialized ministers.
After the composition of the Council of Ministers is decided by the newly elected government, the deputies who are chosen to become ministers. These rights are restored in case they are released from the Council of Ministers or the government falls from power. This is in contrast to how deputy ministers and other government officials are treated when they are elected as deputies.
Sometimes, with the purpose of preserving the political representation of different parts or groups in the Council of Ministers, one or more Ministers without portfolio (lacking a ministry of Their Own) May be appointed.
The Council of Ministers is in central Sofia and is part of the architectural Largo together.
