Bulgarians in 68 countries across the world will vote in a total of 784 polling stations on July 11, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has reported.

The biggest number of polling stations open in the UK - 135, followed by Germany with 117, and Turkey - 112. The number of stations abroad has risen by 70% compared to the regular elections in April. The number of voting applications submitted is over 65,000 or about 15,000 less in comparison to the regular elections in April.

"Nineteen days before the election, there is still no decision of the Central Election Commission on the number of voting machines, which creates much tension," Ivan Kondov, chairman of the "Elections" working group, said. The group's deputy chairman, Kalin Anastasov added that if the CEC did not take the decision by Thursday, a supply problem could be expected in some countries.
