“We Continue the Change”, the Bulgarian Socialist Party, “There is Such a People” party and “Democratic Bulgaria” continue the talks on the formation of a coalition cabinet with a discussion on culture-related topics. The participants agreed that up to 1.5% of Bulgaria’s gross domestic product will be spent on culture, if there is enough money in the state budget. 

The future government will prepare amendments to the Copyright and Associated Rights Act, the Radio and Television Act, the Film Indutry Act, the Community Centers Act, under a ten-year strategy. The four parties also agreed on the need for a registry for self-employed artists. They also discussed the introduction of vouchers for visiting cultural events and a Bulgarian Language Act. Singer Hristo Petrov, also known as Itso Hazarta, left the debate early.
