Bulgaria's Prime Minister Boyko Borisov has suggested that the capital could have gone without the elections for mayor, with the victory of the new mayor Yordanka Fandakova being that predictable.

“We could just appoint Yordanka Fandakova for mayor of Sofia and not waste money for elections,” Boyko Borisov, who is also leader of center-right GERB party, commented the results from the elections in the capital, which his party candidate won in a landslide.

In a visibly high spirits, Borisov repeated that Fandakov election is a cause for celebrations and thanked the center-right parties the Union of Democratic Forces and Democrats for Strong Bulgaria, as well as the nationalists from Ataka for their support.

He seized the chance to fire back to remarks by President Georgi Parvano, who commented on Thursday that the parties have entered into a secret coalition.

“Mr President, this is not a secret coalition, all who hate the Bulgarian Socialist Party and the ethnic Turkish Movement for Rights and Freedoms have united against you,” the prime minister said.

Borisov downplayed the low electoral turnout and the withdrawal of voters in comparison with the general elections.

“The people, who are drivers of the nation – the educated and active people vote for us, they go to the voting booths just in as many numbers as are necessary for us to clinch a victory,” he explained.

“Practically today I am dethroned as a mayor of Sofia,” Borisov said, extending his gratitude to the municipality councilors from all parties for working jointly with them.

He did not miss to single out the successes of his terms as mayor, mentioning the huge number of working fountains, kindergartens and a subway passing across the city. In his words Bulgaria's only project under the Jaspers program has been implemented by Sofia municipality.

“For the sake of comparison, Romania has implemented 15 projects under the program,” he said.

The opening of the subway section from the district of Obelya to boulevard Cherni vrah by 2012, the launch of the garbage processing plant and the completion of the ringroad were singled out by Borisov among the priorities of the municipality and its new mayor.

“We are going to do all this together,” Borisov said.

See how with every passing day Bate Boyko grows more like his former mentor and employer, Bai Tosho?

" Particularly persons who were given political responsibilities in one way or another should make the time and efforts to read the Bg Constitution together with the EU Human Rights so they prevent themselves from violating them."

There are NO such laws. There are no laws that can force any nation to take in the human garbage of another nation, especially if that other nation is not in the EU and never will be. And if the human garbage is Muslim vermin. There is no law that can force a sovereign nation to use another language. The ignorant Turkish vermin should learn Bulgarian or go back to Turkey. No one will miss them.

Why don't you go and become a suicide bomber or something? Soon, I hope.

Lawless

" It seem wrong that a person who has been chosen for a PM to talk about hatred agianst the Turkish Party "

Well, of course you would say this, you are a Turkish vermin. The Turkish party in Bulgaria are corrupt criminals who stole 100 million euros of farm subsidies and it is still missing. It is probably in Turkey by now, or in Ahmed Dogan's Swiss bank account. Why do you Turkish kopeleta want to live where you are not wanted? Is it not enough that you have infiltrated Germany with your ugly Muslim mosques and clothes? You have to infiltrate Bulgaria now? It is not going to happen, you disgusting vermin. Stay in Turkey and dream about going to Germany. Ignorant imbecile.

“Mr President, this is not a secret coalition, all who hate the Bulgarian Socialist Party and the ethnic Turkish Movement for Rights and Freedoms have united against you,” the prime minister said."
And talking about hatred - is Bulgaria a member of the EU or not? It seem wrong that a person who has been chosen for a PM to talk about hatred agianst the Turkish Party consequently its supporters - too harsh and a very bad example for the rest of the society. Talking about LAWS, perheps he is not the only one who needs to be educated that Bulgaria is bound by the EU Human Rights and perhaps all parlamentarists have to be educated on the Bulgarian Constitution and refrain of making mistakes which actually ruin their own image in the eyes of the People and in the ayes of the Law.Particularly persons who were given political responsibilities in one way or another should make the time and efforts to read the Bg Constitution together with the EU Human Rights so they prevent themselves from violating them. A politician who is not aware of the laws cannot be a politician with a credible opinion in politics - if they dont know the regulations it is easy to break them and the People already started realising this.

Isn't her CV a bit light for this job? A school principal becomes the mayor of Sofia. Well, I guess that's no worse than a black community organizer becoming a US president.

Guess again.
