Ex Bulgarian Tsar Urges National Unity
I don't know of a nation or people who prosper and achieve their objectives divided, says former Tsar and Prime Minister, Simeon Saxe-Coburg.
He was among the guests at the Monday celebration of the 100th anniversary of Bulgaria's Supreme Administrative Court (VAS), which was established with a decree of his grandfather, Tsar Ferdinand. The ceremony was attended by senior officials of the country like the President, the Prime Minister, the Speaker of the Parliament, key members of the judiciary such as the Chief Prosecutor and the Chairman of the Supreme Court of Cassations.
"Bulgaria will advance if there is a little more dialogue, especially listening to the words of others before speaking, mutual respect and general tolerance," said Simeon Saxe-Coburg, but admitted that he has been criticized for being "too tolerant" as politician.
"We have to respect all views, regardless of what ours is. And with it, see a society that is united and can really pull the wagon. If we all pull in the same direction, I am firmly convinced that we will achieve success," the former Prime Minister stressed.
