Six Parties Likely To Enter Parliament – Poll
Bulgaria's early elections this Sunday will most likely send six parties in Parliament, shows a public opinion poll, published by the Alpha Research agency on its website.
It surveyed 1100 adult Bulgarian citizens in the period September 28-30.
According to the results, the centrist GERB might have between 98 and 100 seats with 34.1% of the votes, followed by the Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP) with 53-55 seats and 19.1%, the Movement for Rights and Freedoms (DPS) – 15.4% of the votes and 44-46 seats, the Reformist Bloc and Bulgaria Without Censorship – 16-18 seats and 6% of the votes each. The most likely sixth party would be the nationalist coalition Patriotic Front, which could get 12 seats and 4.2%.
The Alpha Research analysis, however, does not exclude the possibility of another two parties – ABV and Ataka passing the four-percent threshold.
According to the survey, the voter turnout would be lower than during the previous parliamentary elections in 2013.
