Bulgarians in Türkiye with dual citizenship to vote for weekend snap election
"We encourage citizens to cast their vote, which is their legal and democratic right. We want them to come to the ballot boxes and exercise their rights by voting," Cevat Gunes, head of the Culture and Solidarity Association for Thrace and Balkan Turks, told Anadolu Agency.
Electronic voting machines will be used at the ballot boxes which will be set up in northwestern Edirne province for the first time this year.
A total of 28 ballot boxes will be set up in Thrace, including three in Edirne, seven in Kirklareli and 18 in Tekirdag provinces.
The Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP), which on July 18 was given a mandate to form a government, officially returned it to President Rumen Radev.
The elections will be the fourth in two years for the country, which has been marred by political instability since Prime Minister Kiril Petkov’s government was toppled in a no-confidence vote in June.
