Commenting article: Bulgarian Politicians - the Lost Dignity of the Loss

On October 30, in elections runoff, Bulgaria chose its new president – Rosen Plevneliev.

Official results are in - 47-year-old Rosen Plevneliev, former Regional Minister and candidate of the ruling center-right party GERB, won with 52.58% of the votes cast. His opponent from the Bulgarian Socialist Party Ivaylo Kalfin lost by a relatively narrow margin – he got 47.2% of the vote.

Plevneliev is known abroad, speaks foreign languages, has never been a member of a political party or tangled with shady figures. A self-made businessman, he has accumulated his wealth thanks to his own abilities and effort. Being rich is still considered a sin by many in Bulgaria, but it means he would not be tempted by corruption scams. The only shadow cast on his image are fears he will be a puppet in the hands of Prime Minister and GERB leader, Boyko Borisov, known for his unstoppable ambition and rather authoritarian style.

I totally disagree with this being an article of high quality; it’s more about American politics than Bulgarian…..

Do we really need a lesson on American post election etiquette ??
