At a meeting with the leadership of the Central Election Commisison regarding the organization of the forthcoming Parliamentary and Presidential elections, Bulgaria’s head of state Rumen Radev again called for an active awareness-raising campaign and publicity during the testing of the voting machines.

The Central Election Commission gave assurances that it was ready for the holding of 2-in-1 elections, if Rumen Radev scheduled the early general elections for November 14. In order to reduce overcrowiding in front of the polling stations, the Central Election Commisison is ready, on the basis of an analysis of the voter turnout at the previous elections, to provide more voting machines.
