Bulgaria: Bogus Plays, Weather Forecast Hint at EP Election Results in Bulgaria Photo by

As Bulgaria got halfway through its European Parliament elections, a number of news sites published bogus forecasts indicating runners' likely standings.

The news portals deployed a range of tricks to sidestep a ban on announcing intermediate results, for instance by using names of theatrical performances, temperatures measured around the headquarters of the parties, names of songs, etc.

According to mediapool,bg, the best-selling theatrical performances are, "Muscovites by the Dozen", backed by 20.5 - 23.6% of the audience, depending on the results of the different rating agencies.

"The Son of the Great Merkel" is backed by 25-27% of the audience.

"Lafka ("canteen") in the Seraglio" is backed by 22-13.6% of the audience.

"Bulgaria without Kangaroos" is backed by 8.3% of the audience.

"Roommates in the Block" is backed by an audience of 5.2%, "A for Aragli" by 2.4-3.6%, "The Colonialist from Varadero" by 2.9-4.5%, "The Alien from the Other Skat" by 2.7%.

According to private TV station bTV, the strongest cyclone by 12 noon on Sunday is the blue cyclone, at a speed of 28.5 meters per second.

The red cyclone is the second strongest, at a speed of 20.6 m/s, followed by the purple cyclone with a speed of 15.4 m/s, and the yellow cyclone at a speed of 11.4 m/s.

The fifth strongest cyclone moves at a speed of 5.9 m/s and all other cyclones are too weak to deserve mentioning on the map.
