If elections for European Parliament were held today, in Bulgaria the Bulgarian  Socialist Party (BSP) would get 19.2% of votes, shows a poll of Sova Harris agency. 

According to the survey, quoted by Bulgaria’s Presa daily, the opposition center-right GERB would get 17% of the votes and the ethnic Turkish party DPS would get 6.2%.

On fourth position, with 5.5% is the party of the journalist-turned-politician Nikolai Barekov, Bulgaria Without Censure (BWC), and on fifth is the Reformist Block with 4.1%. 

The survey finds that 58% of voters plan on casting their ballot, which, according to the polling agency, is unusually high activity for Bulgaria in European elections. 

If the declared electoral activity remains the same, BSP and GERB would get six seats each, DPS and BWC would get two each and the Reformist Block would get one.

I am amazed that there are people in Bulgaria who would even consider voting for any party other than the BSP. After all the BSP has completely regenerated the country during the last year bringing full employment, doubling salaries and ensuring the repression and fear that all Bulgarian citizens had of the GERB government is now a thing of the past.
