Bulgaria’s former Ombudsman and current leader of "Izpravi Se.bg" civic platform Maya Manolova will not found a political party, but will participate at the Parliamentary elections with a wide partner network instead. The network will include civil organizations, political parties which are not part of the current status quo, citizens and experts. “We are all uniting around a memorandum to dismantle the authoritarian regime of Premier Boyko Borissov and increase incomes of the Bulgarian citizens. We are to participate at the elections as a wide anti-Borissov coalition”, Maya Manolova said at an event which took place at Slaveykov Square downtown Sofia, reporters of BNR inform.

The partner network stands behind the demands of the protesters and offers a package of economic measures aimed to reach a minimum monthly income of EUR 511 (1,000 BGN).
