Nearly half of the Bulgarians think that it would be better for the country, if there were early parliamentary elections.

The survey of Exacta Research Group, done between February 5 and 11 among 1000 adult Bulgarians shows that 47% want early elections, while one third – as many as two months ago – want the current Parliament to complete its term.

The data registers the continuing drop in popularity of Parliament and Government – in the past two months the former lost 4% from its approval rating, while the latter – 2%. In mid-February only 15% of Bulgarians are in favour of Parliament and 25% - of the Government.

Prime Minister Plamen Oresharski is also losing 2% from his approval rating and has the favour of only 30% of the Bulgarians.

The most liked politician is Sofia mayor Yordanka Fandakova with 51%, followed by President Rosen Plevneliev with 43%.

Most Bulgarians don't vote so a poll of 1,000 people is stupid.

They need to poll people who voted and ask them what they think.

GERB do the exist anymore as a political party or are they just criminals who do nothing and rip off Bulgaria,
