The leadership of Bulgaria's ethnic Turkish party Movement for Rights and Freedoms, DPS, will include the attack on the life of Ahmed Dogan, now DPS honorary Chairman, in the forthcoming non-confidence vote against the Cabinet.

The statement was made by the new leader of DPS, Lyutvi Mestan, at the official emergency press conference of the party in the capital Sofia Sunday afternoon.

Mestan, who was elected at the post Saturday, stressed the no confidence vote was going to be tabled ASAP, but added the party will deal with it very cautiously since no opposition party has enough Members of the Parliament to initiate the vote on its own.

On Saturday, police in Bulgaria detained a man after he pointed a gun at Dogan  as he was delivering a speech in the capital Sofia. No shots were fired. The man was identified as Oktay Enimehmedov, a 25-year-old ethnic Turkish resident of the city of Burgas, with a previous criminal record for assault and theft.

At the press conference, Mestan labeled the intentions of the investigation to probe delegates of the party's caucus for battery "cynical," stressing they were the once to successfully fight off a potential killer and to save the life of their leader.

He underscored these delegates must be congratulated for their courage and for doing the job of the police who took an hour and a half  after the attack to arrive at the scene of the incident.

At the beginning of the conference, Mestan voiced outrage from the shift of focus regarding the murder attempt in presenting it as an individual act of a man who only wanted his moment of glory.

He also informed the party will ask for an international probe in the incident they are convinced was an attempt for political murder.
