Bulgaria's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, as well as diplomatic and consular missions, have carried out all the actions for the preparation for the October 2 elections. This was announced by the caretaker Foreign Minister Nikolay Milkov at a briefing at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) today. According to Milkov, the resources exceed the capacity of the consular representations and therefore the Ministry of Foreign Affairs also relies on the Bulgarian communities abroad. 

Bulgarians abroad will vote in 755 polling stations in 62 countries. Regarding the machine voting, it will be possible in 300 polling stations - in 238 polling stations there will be 2 machines, in 62 stations -1 machine. 538 machines were transported, 22 more than last year, noted Minister Milkov.

During the past week, trainings were held for members of the elections committees of the persons seconded by the Minister of Foreign Affairs. Thus, in each polling station there must be 1 representative of the state, who is familiar with the electoral process and code, and should monitor the compliance with the regulations.

Minister Milkov recalled that the addresses of the polling stations abroad are also published on the ministry's website.
