Bulgarian President Reiterates Call for High Voter Turnout
President Rosen Plevneliev has once again urged Bulgarians to vote at the parliamentary elections on Sunday.
After voting in the capital Sofia, the head of state voiced hopes that the population would use its "most powerful weapon" to set rules and place tasks before politicians.
“I call upon Bulgarians to vote – and to understand that they have a historic chance today. No one can stand against the people’s vote,” he told reporters.
Plevneliev said he was sure that prosecutors will thoroughly investigate the illegal ballots scandal that shook the country just one day ahead of the crucial election.
Bulgarians are voting in a tight snap election in which no party is expected to win a majority to form a government. Recent opinion polls indicate that GERB and the Bulgarian Socialist Party are nearly tied.
