“I support the democratically minded citizens who have been coming out in the streets to protest for 80 days now, but not President Rumen Radev,” said the leader of Republicans for Bulgaria Tsvetan Tsvetanov for the BNR.

Tsvetan Tsvetanov, former number 2 in GERB party, is officially establishing his new party – Republicans for Bulgaria – today.

“More than ever we need to hold fair elections,” he said. Tsvetan Tsvetanov also commented the government’s fear of the appointment of a caretaker cabinet: “If such a cabinet were to vote decisions which do not correspond to the country’s road – the EU and euro-Atlantic development – then parliament can always change them.”  Tsvetan Tsvetanov stated further that Democratic Bulgaria comes close to the principles of his party but that he had also held talks with other political formations “on principle and within certain parametres.”
