MEP and ex-journalist Nikolay Barekov's Bulgaria without Censorship has sealed a coalition agreement with Lider ("Leader") party, Barekov himself announced.

Lider, formally represented by chairman Kancho Filipov, is unofficially concentrated around energy tycoon Hristo Kovachki.

Barekov declared the party's union with his coalition as he arrived at the Central Electoral Commission (CEC) to make BWC's registration for the upcoming early elections on October 5.

His press office also announced the news in a message to the media.

The leader submitted his coalition's registration with 7777 signatures, explaining seven was "his lucky number".

An earlier BWC press release also included comments on former Foreign Minister Solomon Passy's decision to leave the National Movement for Stability and Progress (NDSV) that he announced on Sunday.

It stated Barekov's support for the decision of Passy, echoing his calls that the NDSV should be dissolved, but added it could also join the BWC-led "big centrist patriotic bloc".`

The NDSV earlier categorically turned down any prospects to join hands with Barekov.

Stanishev is a top politican, he created a government last May when Gerb failed to do so.

I hope he gets elected as the leader of PES in September and a politican of his ability will earn respect for Bulgaria.

There will be no animal quotes from him such as BB "put me in power or you will all starve this Winter"

This approach makes Bulgaria look stupid and like something from hundreds of years ago.

Are you so blind in your manifest worship of the Socialist Commies, that you don't see them for what they really are? They're the epitome of despotic opportunists and thieving mongrels (Stanishite for one, is a perfect example- he couldn't lie straight in bed) whom only care for themselves, not their country, nor the people who "vote" for them. Their pretense of caring is just an illusion for gullible masses and individuals like yourself, and they can't be trusted under any circumstances. Time has proven that over and over again, with that mob.

Barekov and Borisov are so similar and so ambitious and power hungry, God help us and protect us from their lust for power.
