Parliamentary and presidential elections in Bulgaria began in the early hours of Sunday morning. About 6.7 million voters were called for the third time this year to elect 240 members of the National Assembly. In the presidential election, the incumbent Romain Radio is the frontrunner.
Polls are open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. CET. Then, forecasts are published on the basis of voter questionnaires. Official final results can be expected within four days of the election.
The third parliamentary elections in a year were necessary because the People’s Assembly, elected only in July, was unable to achieve a majority capable of ruling. Once again, according to polls, six parties are likely to overcome the four percent hurdle to enter Parliament this time. Thus, the strongest force could be the bourgeois party Tajrib led by Prime Minister Boyko Borisseau, who was voted on in April, with 24 per cent. However, it is doubtful whether he will find partners in the alliance.
According to opinion polls, the new anti-corruption party “We keep changing” (PP) can expect up to 16 percent. According to opinion polls, a reform-oriented government could emerge around them.
