Bulgarian cabinet resigns amid public anger

Prime Minister Boiko Borisov of Bulgaria submitted his government’s resignation Wednesday after a tumultuous week of public anger over rising electricity prices, corruption, and austerity measures that ignited mass protests and led to bloody clashes with police on Tuesday night.

The speaker of the Parliament, Tsetska Tsacheva, said that she had received the official letter of resignation, but it would not take effect until legislators voted on it Thursday.
