Commenting article: Embattled Bulgarian PM: Elections Were Too Little Ago

Bulgarian PM Plamen Oresharski has reiterated his position that it is all too early for Bulgaria to hold snap elections.

According to him, a resignation would be not only impracticl, but also in violation of political locic.

"The attitudes in a society regardin who should rule are decided at elections. And elections were just a little while ago," commented the PM

The same goes for GERB and the previous government which also needed support from Ataka until they bribed some ATAKA members...

So, really, I do not understand Bulgarians. They demonstrate against democracy and EU if you listen to them and then they shout democracy and ask the EU for help...

Dumb dumber dumbest. (luckily we have good examples overhere)

A government needs the trust of at least 50% of the voters. At the elections they only got the support of 50% of the seats in parliament. They made a blunder a little after that by trying to make Peevski director of DANS, so it is highly likely they have less than 50% of the trust of voters now. Political locic dictates that they then should ask the voters for their trust again by organising new elections.

And what's wrong with "too recent" rather than "too little ago"? ;)

73.4% of voters didn't want the BSP in charge, and that was BEFORE they selected a number of known criminals for positions of vital national importance.

88.7% of voters didn't want anyone from the DPS in power, yet regions where nobody voted for them are having their members forced upon them as regional governers.

over 90% of voters didn't want supreme uberlord fuhrer Bolen Mandelarov anywhere near the parliament, yet he's in charge of ethics?

even summing up the totals, the trifecta of doom only received 45.2% of the total votes - so remind me how they represent the voters?

don't give us bullsh!t about how the democratic process chose you - a fatally flawed electoral process allowed you to seize power.
