Nationalist MP Joins Bulgaria without Censorship Party
Dimitar Avramov, MP from nationalist party Ataka, has announced he is joining the Bulgaria without Censorship party of former TV host Nikolay Barekov.
Avramov, as cited by Sega daily, explained his decision with the lack of alternative to the attempts to form a coalition of center-right party GERB (Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria) and liberal party Movement for Rights and Freedoms (DPS).
He claimed that the Bulgaria without Censorship party was the only entity which could stand in the way of such a harmful coalition.
Avramov also made clear that he would be the top name on the election list of the Bulgaria without Censorship party in Razgrad for the early elections on October 5.
Avramov is the third independent MP to officially announce his plans to join the Bulgaria without Censorship party after Svetlin Tanchev, former GERB MP, and Rumen Yonchev, who left the ranks of the Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP).
Avramov's move comes just days ahead of the dissolution of the 42nd National Assembly, scheduled to be declared on August 6.
