Lack of Common Sense Kills Bulgaria
You know what I hate most about Bulgaria's rulers, opposition and protesters?
Lack of common sense and clear goals.
We saw more of that on Wednesday.
The shocking resignation of the government, just months before the regular general elections, may or may not have been orchestrated by the oligarchs who stand behind Boyko Borisov.
But it is clear that neither oligarchs, nor protesters or opposition care that the move is an unforgivable waste of precious energy, time and money.
The protests got incredibly politicized, their goals constantly changing to end up on the revolutionary note of a call for Grand Assembly.
Time for reality check.
Early vote seems to be the most likely development for the time being.
The procedure for snap polls lasts at least seventy days, so it will most probably be at end April or May, a month or two before the regular general elections.
Murky waters are the best environment for the oligarchs to do whatever they want to do. And these are the worst times for the ordinary people, who will have even less money for their bills.
You may ask, what is the best case scenario?
Grand National Assembly and new Constitution.
Is it realistic?
