Thousands Join 11th Day of Anti-Govt Rallies in Bulgaria
Thousands have gathered in Bulgaria’s capital Sofia to protest against the Socialist-led government of Prime Minister Plamen Oresharski for an eleventh straight day.
The number of protesters gathering on Sofia’s Independence Square has not decreased despite the scorching heat in the capital.
People are chanting “Mafia!”, “Resignation!” and “Red trash!” once again, according to reporters.
The protest has been peaceful so far, despite fears that small ultranationalist groups would stage counter-rallies and attempt to provoke protesters.
Bulgaria's new PM, appointed by parliament May 29, has provoked the ire of parts of the public by making a number of questionable appointments – most notably that of national security head Delyan Peevski.
Protesters have been critical of all parties in Parliament, which has provoked some citizens and analysts to claim that Bulgaria's election system needs a thorough review to allow for more adequate representation of the people's will.
