Bulgaria’s main opposition Socialists will elect a new party leader for a four-year term at a congress that started on Saturday.

Twenty-eight nominations for leader of the second-biggest political party in Bulgaria have been made prior to the opening of the two-day congress in the National Palace of Culture in Sofia. 

Korneliya Ninova, a Socialist MP, who emerged as the main contender for the top party post, has said that she expects a tight race.

The current BSP leader Mihail Mikov, who is seeking re-election, will present a political report and reports on the activities of the party’s National Council as well as BSP activities at parliamentary level.

The party’s 49th congress will adopt a political declaration and elect members of its governing bodies.
