About 200 Bulgarians have taken once again to the streets of the capital Sofia Saturday evening to demand the resignation of the country's government for a 65th day in a row in the record-long protest in the country.

The demonstrators against the Socialist-endorsed Cabinet of Prime Minister, Plamen Oresharski, gathered once again on Independence square in front of the Council of Ministers building.

As usual, many brought their children and dogs, held banners and national flags, and shouted resignation.

Around 8 pm, the rally started its traditional route and moved in the direction of the Parliament. Its building was guarded by riot police, but there were no metal fences.

The rally ended around 9 pm.
