President Radev calls for early elections but doubts they will be fair

President Rumen Radev

“The European Parliament resolution on Bulgaria must lead to elections right now,” President Rumen Radev said in Varna. He expressed strong doubt that the election code, which he vetoed after which parliament overturned the veto, can guarantee that they will be fair, the BNR reports

In President Radev’s words the resolution debunked the propaganda premise of the government that the country is treading the path of the European future, as well as the idea that they themselves have the wholehearted approval of the EU. "This is a situation that can be resolved with quick, fair elections that will form a new parliament enjoying the necessary approval," the President said.

The Bulgarian head of state urged the public to go out and vote.
