Bulgaria: Bulgarian Parliament Speaker: Presidential Elections Coming in November

The head of the parliament, Iva Miteva, who is an MP from "There Is Such a People", spoke out against political populism.

She appealed to the parliament, the president and the Council of Ministers to stop populism and start talking about real action.

It is still unclear to which political force the president will hand over the third term, but in the opinion of the Speaker of the National Assembly, Miteva, it would be best if "Stand up BG! We are coming" receive it.

At the moment, however, the TISP party has repeatedly announced that it will not support a cabinet with a third term, regardless of who holds the mandate. The parliamentary group, to which Iva Miteva also belongs, refuses to participate more in talks to form a government, which almost certainly dooms such attempts to failure. TISP explained that they were offended and that they felt betrayed.

According to Miteva, the presidential elections will be held in November, and from the point of view of savings, it is better to have two in one election, if a regular government is not formed.

The budget update is being seriously and thoroughly discussed and will go to the first and second voting on schedule, Miteva announced at a press conference in Razgrad.

"Another question is whether the budget will be adopted with these parameters, with which it was submitted, because both we and our colleagues from Democratic Bulgaria and BSP have obstructions in terms of individual parameters," she commented. That is why the ministers have prepared an updated picture, they have presented new information and new data to the President's Advisory Council, so everything will be taken into account, working hard on this issue," Miteva was quoted as saying by BTA.

The recalculation of pensions should also happen, but definitely not in the way it was paid by BSP, Miteva believes. According to her, in the recalculation, all retirees should receive an increase, not just a certain number of people.
