Bulgarian Socialists Approve Presidential Nomination of Ex Air Force Chief
Former Air Force Commander Maj Gen Rumen Radev is to be registered as the Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP)'s contender in the November 06 presidential elections, party leader Korneliya Ninova has said.
Radev's candidacy has been endorsed through a so-called "initiative committee," Ninova has told the media after a vote held at the BSP National Council.
The Tuesday vote follows rifts opened both between the BSP and left-wing ABV party - and among socialist party members themselves - over the nomination of Radev.
The BSP and ABV have been embroiled in a dispute over whether Radev's name was proposed by the former or the latter party and over how his running mate should be selected.
Separately, other BSP members have argued Ninova took the decision to nominate Radev unilaterally.
