A total of 566,435 people have given their vote in support of a referendum on the future of country's nuclear plant Kozloduy.

The results of the week-long civic referendum were announced on Sunday by Krassimir Karakachanov, leader of the nationalistic VMRO movement.

The initiative was organized by the second pre-election right-wing coalition, which emerged at the end of February on the jagged spectrum, bringing together the Union of Free Democrats of Sofia Mayor Stefan Sofianski, the Agriculture Party (BZNS) of Anastasia Mozer and the nationalistic VMRO of Krassimir Karakachanov.

They demand that the decision for Kozloduy units decommissioning be reconsidered to prevent electricity price hikes.

The referendum gave citizens the opportunity to offer their opinions by casting ballots, telephone calls, post or online vote.
