'Bulgaria without Censorship' Leader Seeks Early Elections on Oct 26
Nikolay Barekov, leader of the Bulgaria without Censorship party, has said that the formation supports a no-confidence motion against the socialist-led government.
According to preliminary results of the European Parliament elections, the Bulgaria without Censorship party of the former TV host will send two MEPs to the European Parliament.
Speaking at a press conference on Monday, Barekov informed that he would propose that early elections be held on October 26.
He said that the party had sent a letter to Bulgarian President Rosen Plevneliev to invite him to a meeting on the topic of early elections.
Barekov, as cited by dnevnik.bg, explained the choice of a concrete date with the fact that the party needed time to organize an election campaign, adding that the topic of early elections required a serious approach.
He suggested that the new government had to start its term with its own budget.
Barekov claimed that a consensus candidate for the post of Prime Minister had to be found.
He pointed out that the date of October 26 would allow Bulgaria to spend a calm summer and then hold elections.
He said that the Bulgaria without Censorship party insisted on two key points in the talks on an interim government, including an anti-corruption bill they had prepared, and on social policy. Barekov also noted that a new Election Code had to be prepared.
He stressed that the independent MPs who supported the Bulgaria without Censorship party would back the no-confidence motion against the government of Prime Minister Plamen Oresharski, adding that the formation was positive about the support of two MPs from the current Parliament and other MPs could follow suit.
"Repairing the government is like moving the furniture on the Titanic at 5 minutes to 12. The ship has already been flooded and is sinking" he declared.
