Vice President Iliana Iotova called on the Central Election Commission and the political parties to do their utmost to reassure voters that there will be no abuse of video surveillance on election day.

"We are going to do this experiment for the first time. I spoke with the Minister of e-Government and I was assured that all the measures by law have been taken. However, many people are opting out of participating in the polling station committees, because they are afraid of the video surveillance", Vice President Yotova said.

Iliana Iotova expressed hope that this time there will be a regular cabinet that will solve the important problems facing the country and continue the successful practices of the caretaker cabinet.
