Bulgaria's ethnic Turkish party MRF will not take part in a coalition with the nationalist Attack, its leader said on Tuesday, scuppering chances of a broad Socialist-led alliance that could command a majority in parliament.

Traditional partners the Socialists and MRF will probably fall just short of a majority in the 240-seat parliament and given they will not work with largest party GERB, would need backing from Attack to form a government.

"There can't be a coalition between MRF and Attack in any form," leader Lyutvi Mestan told national radio station BNR.
