Bulgaria's Socialist Party May Run in Elections Under New Name
Bulgarian socialists may run in the upcoming elections under the name BSP – Left Bulgaria, instead of the former Coalition for Bulgaria.
During Friday's plenum socialists introduced changes to the party's leadership. Krasimir Yankov, Borislav Gutsanov and Emil Kostadinov will all be replaced by Zahari Georgiev, MP from Coalition for Bulgaria in the 42th National Assembly, Nova Tv informed.
Former chair of the Bulgarian Socialist Party Sergey Stanishev will not be a part of the leadership of the future BSP - Left Bulgaria coalition. Instead, he is to head the party's Consultative Board, Dnevnik.bg reported.
The plenum began with a speech by the newly-elected party leader Mihail Mikov, who leveled criticism at President Rosen Plevneliev regarding the “clear attempts to interfere with the political life.”

Socialism is alive and well in the 21st Century, France has a socialist government, we need Stanishev to get a big job in Europe.
The Socialists will be the second largest party after the elections, the name change isnt important and then will be in position to broker deals to create a government.
