VMRO - Bulgarian National Movement will not register candidate lists and will participate in the upcoming April 2 snap parliamentary elections with an active campaign "I Do Not Support Anyone". The Executive Committee of VMRO decided to boycott the snap elections. "We have no choice but to boycott the elections when foreign embassies and a marginal vote dictate Bulgarian politics", VMRO said. According to the party's declaration, "for two years the same political parties have been reproducing themselves in the National Assembly, spending millions on campaigns and elections."

The political force announced that they are starting an active campaign "I Do Not Support Anyone". VMRO were part of a coalition government headed by former Premier Boyko Borissov. Its term of office ended on May 21, 2021. Since then, the party has failed to pass the 4% barrier to enter parliament.
