Bulgaria's outgoing conservative GERB party will challenge the results from Sunday's elections in the EU's poorest country and seek a new snap vote, ousted ex-premier Boyko Borisov said Thursday.

"For the first time in Bulgaria's history maybe, the party that won the elections will challenge their results. The motive is grave violations of the regulations" on the day before the election, Borisov told journalists in his first public appearance since the vote.
