Commenting article: Who Will Take Over from Sergey Stanishev as Socialist Party Chief?

A Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP) Congress due to result in the election of a new leader on Sunday after Sergey Stanishev has decided to step down.

Stanishev, currently President of the Party of European Socialist (PES) and former Prime Minister in the 2005-2009 cabinet, has headed one of Bulgaria's oldest parties for 14 years, and his legacy has so far had a controversial reception. While some hail his contribution to the party and point his PES office as a proof for his importance, others vigorously dispute any positive role he might have hand, placing an emphasis on the number of defeats in a row the BSP has suffered under his presidency. Others remind his cabinet made a number of deals which led some experts to allege his involvement into business circles with the participation of his wife, Monika.

Will all that said, it is important to keep an eye on the contenders to replace him on July 27 during the BSP's 48th National Cogress.

This is good choice of canditates and they would make great Prime Ministers. One of them could be the next Prime Minister.

Fluency in Russian could be very useful, what about leasing a naval base to the Russian Federation?

I'll bet that they elect another monkey with a red ass.

Worse: they don't understand Bulgarian - they are totally out of touch.
