Nationalists from Bulgaria's Ataka (Attack) have cooked up yet another scandal in Parliament, Darik News reported.

The party is ready to go to the parliamentary ethics commission after a member of the ethnic Turkish Movement for Rights and Freedoms insulted their vice president candidate Pavel Shopov.

"I don't want to cite Yordan Tsonev's words, because they were a sign of blatant vulgarity," Shopov said after the incident.

Tsonev retorted by explaining that he had jumped in to defend the National Assembly's chairman Georgi Pirinski. "Shopov acted like a hooligan," he said. "He wasn't right and insulted the MP calling him a gyon surat [derogatory name for a simpleton who's never unearthed by any situation. Literal translation is sole-leather-face]."
