Coalition or another parliamentary election in Bulgaria?

Voting for the 5th parliamentary election in Bulgaria in the last 2 years has ended.

According to the first unofficial results after the polls are closed, the 49th parliament with 240 members will have at least 5 political forces.

According to the distribution of votes, no political power will be able to form a government alone. The parties will have to go to negotiations for the coalition.

According to the Gallup International company's survey, the right-wing, pro-European Union and NATO Pro-Change-Democratic Bulgaria (PP-DB) coalition got the chance to have the most deputies in the parliament, with 25.3 percent of the votes.

The Citizens for the European Development of Bulgaria (GERB) party, led by one of the former Prime Ministers, Boyko Borisov, is in second place, receiving 24.7% of the votes.

The Central Election Commission (ZİK) will announce the final results of the election, which has a turnout of around 40 percent, on 7 April.

It is expected that the votes coming from abroad will affect the results significantly.

The great success of the HÖH party

The Movement for Rights and Freedoms (HÖH) party, which received 13.1% of the votes in the election, is expected to be the 3rd or 4th party in the parliament.

Accordingly, MRF, which is supported by Turkish and Muslim voters in Bulgaria, is expected to have 38 deputies in the parliament. The party had a group of 36 people in the previous parliament.

The pro-Russian populist Vizrajdane (Rebirth) party, which has been excluded by all political circles in Bulgaria, will also win 14.2 percent of the votes and take its place in the parliament. Vizrajdane had received 10 percent of the vote in the previous election. This party, which insists on Bulgaria's exit from NATO and the EU as soon as possible, is not expected to establish a dialogue with other parliamentarians.

The Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP) will join parliament with 9.9 percent of the vote.

The votes of such a People's Var (ITN) party, led by the populist showman Slavi Trifonov, reached 4 percent.

In the last 2 years, the country has been governed by interim governments appointed by President Rumen Radev, due to the failure of 4 short-lived parliaments to form a government.

Radev stated that he will announce the opening date of the new parliament as soon as possible.
