Manipulation of the elections and redistribution of portions in power are behind the changes in the Electoral Code, said Bulgaria's President Rumen Radev after attending the festive liturgy on the occasion of Sofia Day. This is the reason why he vetoed the texts adopted in the National Assembly regarding the Electoral Code. 
"This is an attempt to preserve the possibility of manipulating the elections, and there are also economic dimensions, because the decision of the MPs means that the financing of the voting machines is rendered meaningless," the head of state commented.
Regarding the forced removal of the mothers of children with disabilities from "The System Is Killing Us" initiative from the parliament building yesterday, he said that the employees of the National Service for Protection acted on the instructions of the National Assembly Speaker Tsveta Karayancheva and that the problem with what happened was not in the service.
"The debate on the state of democracy and the rule of law is taking place in the European Parliament, and the Bulgarian government keeps denying the existence of the problem," Radev said, again demanding the resignation of the Bulgarian government and the chief prosecutor.
