“A nomination committee is being constructed for the presidential nomination of Rumen Radev and Iliana Yotova," Vice President Yotova herself announced in Svishtov.

“There are people in the committee from the entire political spectrum, with ideas that are most diverse. They will include the cream of the nation. We would not like to be an instrument in the hands of the political parties, that is not the spirit of the presidential institution,” she added.

As to the new party of former caretaker ministers Kiril Petkov and Assen Vassilev, Vice President Yotova commented: “It seems to me that these people are more likely to attract our children (…) It very much looks to me like Emmanuel Macron's La République En Marche. It very much looks  like the programme of the Citizens in Spain.”
