Bulgaria: Bulgarian Cabinet Support-Petition Reaches 1.4 M Bulgarian Prime Minister Plamen Oresharski. Photo by BGNES

Supporters of the Bulgarian Prime Minister Plamen Oresharski have submitted an additional 660 000 signatures in support of the current Socialist-led coalition cabinet.

With that, the total number of signatories to the petition are close to 1.4 million, from all parts of the country, revealed Stoyan Todorov from the "New Social Contract" initiative, cited by BGNES.

Plamen Oresharski met with citizens from the initiative and thanked them for the support they have given him.

"Constructive criticism is welcome. I am not a person who cannot take criticism. In fact, praises bother me more", said the Prime Minister.

Todorov believes the government has demonstrated willingness to address key problems and openness to dialogue from the very beginning of its term in office.

The petition was initiated as a means to show that despite ongoing anti-government protests, the cabinet enjoys wide public support as well.

LOL Tania sheepie is a new word to me, I had to look it up.

Yes some Government supporters can be sheepie because the know this government is better for Bulgaria than the right wing alternative.

I like the current Government because it involves all the parties - A GERB President, Socialists, Turks and support from the Nationalists. Few countries in the world have this kind of inclusive structure.

How many protestors are there, 50, 100, 150, maybe as many as 300?

This small number of protestors are a useless waste of time.

The petition shows that this Government has popular support.

there seems to be a new number 1 name in bulgaria - it used to be that people chose "ivan" or "georgi" for their newborn, but according to this petition, the most popular name is now "Mickey". although those pesky mice do breed like rabbits.

Of course, some members of the public know this petition is far more important than a negative credit rating - especially the ones who get 50leva a shot to put their X on a ballot paper....

Bravo Bulgaria! The public know this petition is far more important than a negative credit rating from a capitalist ratings agency.
