Bulgaria’s government has announced it is resigning after nationwide protests against high electricity prices and austerity measures, Prime Minister Boiko Borisov has said.
 
The PM said he had decided to go after protesters against rising electricity prices clashed with police in Sofia, BBC reports.At least 14 people were injured during Tuesday’s demonstrations.
 
“I will not participate in a government under which police are beating people,” Mr Borisov said.”Every drop of blood is a shame for us.”
 
The street protests across Bulgaria – the EU’s poorest country – which began two weeks ago, were initially over high electricity prices but soon took an anti-government turn.
