Bulgarian Opposition Considers No-Confidence Vote over Refugee Influx
Bulgaria’s opposition center-right GERB party considers putting forward yet another no-confidence motion against the government – this time due to the ongoing refugee influx.
Dimitar Glavchev, deputy chair of GERB’s parliamentary group, has told Darik radio that the refugee situation is “one of the issues” that his party believes warrants a no-confidence vote.
GERB may also initiate a no-confidence motion over the government’s policies in the fields of health care or culture, according to local media.
Bulgaria’s fragile Socialist-led government has already survived two no-confidence votes proposed by the center-right party.
The impoverished Balkan state has seen a considerable refugee influx over the past months, with authorities saying the number of asylum seekers in the country may reach 11 000 by the end of the year.
Bulgaria is the gateway to the European Union for refugees fleeing Syria via Turkey, many crossing the border illegally to seek asylum.

Pig-ignorant racist thugs are what Ataka is aiming to attract. They are called a "nationalist" party simply because "fascist" or "Nazi" doesn't project the right kind of image on the national or even local stage - not to mention that their invitations to make prats of themselves in Brussels would be even fewer than they are at present....and even shameless d'Ogan and the Red Trash would find it hard to justify a coalition with them if they sailed under their true colours.....
sa-sha - i'd like to think that there's enough intelligent people in Bulgaria that would be able to prevent such a thing happening.
The only thing that could change this is if Ataka got rid of the utterly nuttier than squirrel sh!t insane clown at their head, and appointed someone who could offer what seemed like "reasonable" nationalist policies, and built support that way. They're just waaaaay to extreme to attract anything other than pig-ignorant racist thugs at the moment.
Eh, Matt, I'd like to be wrong in my evaluation, but...my hint was that the sicker government gets, the more chances nationalists receive. The possible coming chaos may mean the "last poem" for GERB, BSP, Turkish party, for their leading role. The others may come to power and those "others" may be just nationalists, Ataka.
"...it will prove that Ataka are in fact puppets and clinging to power whatever the costs...."
"Prove"? What on earth makes you think that something so self-evident needs to be proved? The idiots who vote for them won't be swayed by anything and the rest of already know what Ataka is and what it stands for......
a bit desperate, but it could possibly be a genius move - it will prove that Ataka are in fact puppets and clinging to power whatever the costs, as they have been making huge noise about closing the borders, but i doubt they'll vote according to their non-existent "policies"
