The Bulgarian Socialist Party is to hold its 48th congress on Saturday, amid fears that a rift in the party may be imminent.

BSP leader Sergey Stanishev is to launch the event by presenting a report on the current political situation in the country, with the upcoming European elections and the new project of former President Georgi Parvanov’s expected to be the main focus.

In January, Parvanov announced his plans to form an alternative left-wing list for the upcoming European elections in May.

BSP officials have strongly criticized Parvanov’s move, calling him and those party members who joined his recently revived ABV movement “traitors.”

Last week, BSP said it had “withdrawn its trust” in 13 officials affiliated with ABV.
