Bulgaria: Bulgaria's Socialist President Plays the Ethnic Card Bulgaria's Socialist President Georgi Parvanov, who is running for re-election, met supporters from Sofia district at the National Palace of Culture. Photo by Yuliana Nikolova (Sofia Photo Agency)

Bulgaria's Socialist President, who is running for re-election, vowed to wage a war against all who try to incite ethnic or religious hatred.

"This is too dangerous a game to allow it," Georgi Parvanov told Saturday supporters from Sofia district at the National Palace of Culture.

He was resolute that the president is powerful enough to play social functions.

At the end of September the predominantly ethnic Turkish ruling party, the Movement for Rights and Freedoms, officially backed the current head of state for a second presidential mandate.

The leader Ahmed Dogan even expressed hopes the president will win a landslide victory and did not miss to point tout that a higher voter turnout would boost his chances.
