At first reading, the Bulgaria parliament has voted on renaming the official name of the holiday of May 24th. At the suggestion of the United Patriots, the deputies wrote in the Labour Code that this official Bulgarian holiday should be called "Day of Bulgarian Letters, Education and Culture", instead of "Day of Bulgarian Education and Culture and the Slavic Letters".
The proposal is subject to additional public debate before its final approval.
