Bulgaria: Bulgarian Socialist Leader Calls for Referendum on Tax System Sergey Stanishev, leader of the Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP) and the Party of European Socialists (PES), photo by BGNES

Sergey Stanishev, former Prime Minister and leader of the Bulgarian Socialist Party and the Party of European Socialists, has spoken in favor of a referendum on the tax system.

Speaking Saturday at the 48th congress of BSP, he noted that the launch of a petition on election legislation brought to mind ideas about referendums on more important matters.

He suggested that a referendum on a proportional vs. a progressive tax system or on the criminalization of the non-payment or the delay of social security contributions would attract greater public interest at a referendum.

Stanishev, as cited by dnevnik.bg, criticized the proposal of President Rosen Plevneliev for a referendum on election legislation, claiming that it was aimed at deflecting attention away from the 2014 European Parliament elections in May to domestic problems.

He noted that the President had become hyperactive after two years of lethargy, seeking to destabilize the government and Parliament.

He called on BSP members to refrain from a negative campaign over the recent proposal for a referendum, reminding that BSP had initiated "the first democratic referendum in Bulgaria", namely the one on the Belene NPP project.

He stressed that Bulgaria's current socialist-led coalition government was doing well and its efforts were already yielding tangible results.

Stanishev pointed out that the priorities for Bulgaria were industrialization, modernization, and a welfare state and reminded that center-right party GERB (Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria) was not to be allowed to return to power.

This filthy scumbag Stanishite is even more mentally unstable than Siderov the maniac. He is so desperate you can smell his fear. He will say anything and do anything to hold onto power at any cost. He accuses the President of destabilising the current government only because he rightly suggested a referendum on electoral procedures, which in fact is what the people want. Everyone is sick to death of the evident underhanded corruption and immorality of the rulers that simply dictate with an iron fist. The Commie paranoia, propaganda and manipulation, and the endless lies and deceit, is the only way they know how to conduct themselves. It's their only modus operandi. Stanishite is a lowlife COMMIE DICTATOR and that's how he rules his filthy party and the whole country. "You will all do as I say or else!"

"and reminded that center-right party GERB (Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria) was not to be allowed to return to power."............................That's all he's worried about, not the country, but that GERB cannot be in government. That's the only priority. Somebody tell this p**** that it is up to the voters to decide who gets elected. That's the main reason he is deflecting the issue of the voting referendum, and has suggested out of the blue, a referendum on taxation, which is not a priority at this time. Secondly, he is privately totally incensed that the breakaway Commies have disobeyed him and are a major destabilising factor, and he is sweating profusely at being challenged and undermining his authority and future leadership. I can just imagine all the behind the scenes furore and his hissy fits and threats, unleashing and highlighting his true character which is NASTY beyond redemption. In fact all the COMMIES are the same and unbelievable that they elected him as President of the Commie party in the EP. Just shows what a grubby lot they truly are in standing behind him.
