An informal alliance under the name Left Platform "Progress" was announced in Sofia. The alliance advocates for joint actions of citizens and organisations for a strong left representation in political life. In the words of the publicist Stanislav Dodov, the Bulgarian Socialist Party has ceased to be a true left-wing party. "Our goal is to push the BSP and other political forces to take a course towards a real modern left," Dodov noted.
