Commenting article: Bulgarian Right-Wing Party Expels 'Maverick' MPs

Bulgarian right-wing party Democrats for Strong Bulgaria (UDF) has expectedly expelled its former leader, as well as two other key MPs, over their reluctance to side with a constitutional judge nomination imposed by the ruling centrist-right GERB.

Earlier on Monday, UDF head Emil Kabaivanov threatened to expel the party's former leader Martin Dimitrov and two more high-profile members – Dimo Gyaurov and Vanyo Sharkov.

The mavericks are now officially kicked out, since they vehemently opposed the nomination of former President Petar Stoyanov for constitutional judge, seeing in it an attempt by Prime Minister Boyko Borisov to attract the allegiance of the Union and create further divisions in the feeble parliamentary Blue Coalition between UDF and the Democrats for Strong Bulgaria party.
