Ahmed Dogan, the leader of the ethnic Turkish Movement DPS, has offered current Bulgarian government coalition partner, Simeon Sax-Coburg leader of NMSP, to join forces in a liberal coalition for the upcoming European elections.

Dogan made the offer at an informal dinner on the February 24, with him, SaX-Coburg and Bulgarian PM Sergey Stanishev all present, DPS party sources reported.

The offer was allegedly made before the recent government coalition split on the ‘two votes in one day' proposal put forward by the National Movement for stability and Progress (NMSP), in which they wanted national and European elections to be held on the same day. It is not yet known if Sax-Coburg has accepted Dogan's proposal, reported Bulgarian daily newspaper 24 Chasa.

The ethnic Turkish Movement for Rights and Freedoms (DPS) party sources confirmed that informal talks between the two leaders had already taken place regarding the coalition subject.

Further developments are expected to be revealed after Graham Watson, the European liberal democrats chief, talks to both leaders when he arrives in Bulgaria on March 30.
