Bulgaria: Are Early Elections Looming Large in Bulgaria – Political Analysts

Why There Is Such a People chose this move [to return the cabinet-forming mandate], who will take the third mandate, if early elections are looming in Bulgaria, sociologist Andrey Raychev and political scientist Prof. Rumyana Kolarova commented on the political situation in the studio of The Day Begins talk show.

Andrey Raychev stated that Bulgaria is entering a long period when the country’s electorate will be fragmented. In his words, in this parliament, party members have intolerable relations with each other and they must immediately end this.

According to Rumyana Kolarova, early elections are looming large now. The president should give a maximum of 10 days before servicing the third state mandate, it is clear that he will try to delay the situation, but that will not be to his advantage, she believes.

Kolarova commented on Antoanaeta Stefanova, the prime minister designated by Slavi Trifonov as "a celebrity used to cover up the disgrace".

"For me, from now on we are witnessing a tactics that almost all parties elected to this parliament will stick to - to control the situation, to reduce the damages. If for BSP and GERB, these are the damages they suffered in the elections then for the three protest parties these are the damage they accumulated for their short period of time in parliament", commented the political scientist.

In her words, there is only one party that will emerge from the situation without damage - it is MRF. Especially if they increase the number of polls outside EU they will certainly draw in more supporters for their party. From now on, the developments depend on PR agents, Kolarova believes.

Andrey Raychev stated that GERB and BSP see future elections in one light and Slavi Trifonov in another.

"For GERB and BSP it is important to keep the election result and if they can improve it a little it would be a great success, while Trifonov sees things differently - if elections are free andorganized by rules, and with all his success as the second political force(something that no one believed), he hopes to garner more support. He hardly thinks about damage and how to keep the result, on the contrary - he wants a second match -if the first one finished in a draw 1:1, now he hopes to beat 3:1," added Raychev.

He commented that Slavi Trifonov had made two moves two in one - the first move is reasonable, not reckless - a refusal to participate in the governing. Antoanaeta Stefanova is a symbolic part - he does not designate her as prime minister, but offers it as "a make-believe prime minister", she symbolizes the degree of radicality of change as he sees it, the sociologist said.

It became clear that the anti-GERB format is not a format suitable for forming a government. If these people want to govern, they need to position themselves in a different way, Prof. Kolarova concluded.
