Compared to the previos election, a 10% rise in the number of those wishing to vote is seen. 10.2% say they will not vote because they fear coronavirus infection.

The new parliament is expected to include six or seven parties. The first is expected to be GERB-SDS with 24.2% support. BSP is second with 19.1%. The parties "We Continue the Change" and "There is Such a People" have 14 percent each. They are followed by "Democratic Bulgaria" and MRF with about 9 percent each, while "Stand up BG! We are Coming!" are on the edge of the 4-percent threshold.

According to the Sova Harris poll, current President Rumen Radev has about 49.7 per cent support, followed by Anastas Gerdhzikov and Mustafa Karadayi with 20.4 and 5 per cent, respectively.
