Sofia, July 12 (EFE) .- The first results of Sunday’s legislative elections in Bulgaria show that former Prime Minister Poyko Borisov’s Conservative GERB party has the most votes, although its main rival opposition formation is such people (INT).
Bulgaria’s European Development Party (GERB) again topped the polls with 23.91% support, after scrutinizing 95.22% of the vote in these elections, the commission announced today in the Balkans.
Singer-songwriter Slavi Tryphono, who entered parliament for the first time in the assembly elections on April 4, is closely followed by IND 23.66%, with opponents promising not to agree with the GERB or the Socialists, who were pushed to third place, with 13.63% of the vote yesterday.
In fourth place, with 12.55%, Democratic Bulgaria was born last summer by anti-corruption struggles against the Borisov government, like the left-wing Stand Up Bulgaria! Thugs out! (5.04%), from the Turkish minority (10.59%) re-entered parliament behind the rights and independence movement.
By a very narrow margin between the two parties that voted the most, the outcome may be changed by the votes of Bulgarians living abroad, who often support the opposition.
Despite losing ground to corruption scandals that have plagued the country for more than a decade, the Conservatives had already won nearly 26% of the vote last April, but the remaining parties refused to join a coalition with them and the absence of an alternative government led to early elections this Sunday.
The country is governed by a technical and provisional administration until a new government is formed, as there is no coalition of parties to add a 121-seat majority to 240 seats in parliament. EFE
