Krum Zarkov

The Bulgarian Socialist Party had to embark on a course of action towards this country’s government and stop the internal contradictions after Kornelia Ninova was elected a Chairperson of BSP in 2016 and the successful parliamentary elections in 2017 ( when BSP placed second with 27.9% of the votes), MP Krum Zarkov said in an interview for the BNR.
