Bulgarian President calls for higher turnout at May 12 election

 

Bulgarian President Rossen Plevneliev said on April 4 that he hoped turnout at the May 12 parliamentary elections would be higher than at previous elections to prevent the worst-case scenario of parliamentary parties being unable to form a government.

Speaking after meeting representatives of pre-electoral mission of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE), Plevneliev said that avoiding such a scenario, which would spark a new political crisis, required a higher turnout by Bulgarian voters.
