Bulgarian President calls for new early elections

imgBulgaria’s president has called for new early elections, claiming this is the only way out of the ongoing political crisis and mass protests.

“Early parliamentary elections are the only democratic solution to the crisis we are in. To tell people that new early elections are a dangerous scenario is to tell them that democracy is dangerous,” Rosen Plevneliev said in his address to the nation in connection with the tense situation in the country.

“Bulgarians are protesting peacefully, which is a clear sign our society is mature…. What is most worrying is that there were attempts to artificially provoke ethnic conflicts. This means playing with fire and the consequences could be disastrous. Haven’t we learned anything from our neighbors? I firmly condemn those provocations!”
