Petar Todorov from France: A government "at any cost" cannot produce reforms

"I voted with the clear awareness that we will never choose the perfect government, but I think that when a person has exercised their right to grass, they can then hold the new government accountable. I hope I voted for the lesser evil!”Petar Todorov, a doctor of physics and IT specialist who has lived and worked in France for 15 years, told Radio Bulgaria. He does not expect radical changes in the country after the July 11 elections, but nevertheless hopes that Bulgaria will take the right direction.


"I think the most central issue, which is also raised by our partners in the EU, is the rule of law. Because a society cannot function normally if the government does not treat everyone equally. I think this is an area that is not working well in Bulgaria and I hope the new government will start reforming the judiciary. I am not convinced that after July 11, regardless of the results, a government must be formed at all costs, because such a government cannot produce the reforms that the state urgently needs.A cabinet "at all costs" will be a simple distribution of posts, there will be a complete political blockade. Such a government will not be able to lead the country out of the crisis and steer it in the right direction. I believe that the constitutional framework of Bulgaria very well outlines the role of the caretaker cabinet and guarantees the stability of the government. You saw what happened in Israel, where there were several consecutive parliamentary elections, until it was finally decided that the country would take a new direction."

According to Petar Todorov, there is currently a government in Bulgaria and it is functioning very well. "This is provided for in the constitutional order and I believe that if there are more elections, if our country continues to move on the path it has taken, it will be good for everyone," Petar Todorov concludes.
