Bulgaria: Exit polls show GERB in the lead; surprise second place for “There is Such A People” as BSP follows

Exit polls after today’s parliamentary elections indicate that Boyko Borissov’s GERB is still a primary force in the Bulgarian political lanscape. GERB’s main rival, the Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP), moved up to third place with TV presenter Slavi Trifonov’s party “There Is Such A People” emerging as the stunner of the election, according to BGNES.

Thus, according to the exit poll, GERB receives 25.1%, “There Is Such A People” 17.1%, the BSP 16.7%, Democratic Bulgaria 10.5%, the MRF 10.2%, the civil platform “Stand Up.BG” 5.0%, and VMRO 4.7%.

According to Alpha Research:

GERB receives 25.7%, BSP 17.6%, “There Is Such A People” 15.2%, the MRF 11%, Democratic Bulgaria 10.4%, “Stand Up.BG”4.2%, and VMRO 4%.

According to Gallup International:

GERB receives 25%, “There is Such A People” 17.1%, Socialist Party BSP 16.7%, Democratic Bulgaria 10.4% and the MRF 10.2%.

Below the entry threshold, yet  with access to the state subsidy, are the parties of Konstantin Konstantinov “Renaissance”, ahead of Vasil Bozhkov’s “Bulgarian National Union”, the coalition between Veselin Mareshki and Valeri Simeonov and Volen Siderov’s formation. /ibna
