Bulgaria to set up 166 polling stations in Türkiye for weekend snap elections
Speaking to Anadolu Agency, Guner Cetin of the Movement for Rights and Freedoms stressed the importance of the coming election to be held after political parties in the country failed to form a government earlier this year.
"There are 166 ballot boxes in Türkiye for these elections. We opened these ballot boxes by collecting declarations from citizens. In other words, they declared that they wanted to vote," he said, noting that "at least 110,000 votes" were expected to be cast in these elections.
He added: "I'd like to make a call, especially to young people, that everyone should head to the polls on Sunday to support the Movement for Rights and Freedoms and do their best for the stability of Bulgaria."
The Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP), which on July 18 was given a mandate to form a government, officially returned it to President Rumen Radev.
These elections will be the fourth in two years for the Balkan country, which has been marred by political instability since Prime Minister Kiril Petkov's government was toppled in a no-confidence vote in June.
