In the early general elections that will be held on April 2 in Bulgaria, 162 ballot boxes will be set up in 23 provinces for dual citizenship in Turkey.
In Bulgaria, which has experienced one of the biggest political crises in its history since the collapse of the communist regime in 1989, people are heading to the polls on April 2 for the fifth time in two years.
The turnout for the April 2 elections is expected to be low due to low voter turnout in recent years and election fatigue among Bulgarian citizens. Therefore, it is believed that the high participation of citizens living outside Bulgaria in the elections will play a constructive role in the formation of the government.
Bulgarian citizens will be able to vote in 62 countries, including Turkey, in early general elections on April 2.
162 ballot boxes will be established in Turkey
In order for dual nationals to vote in the early general elections in Bulgaria, 162 ballot boxes will be set up in 23 provinces of Turkey.
In addition to cities where dual citizens live densely, such as Bursa, Istanbul and Izmir, dual citizens of Uşak will be able to vote for the first time in the province where they reside in these elections.
For dual nationals in Turkey, the polls will open at 07:00 and close at 20:00.
The Movement for Rights and Freedoms (HÖH), whose members are mostly Turks and Muslims, will participate in the electoral race with Compass No. 13.
Twenty-one parties and coalitions will compete in the snap general election.
The participation of dual nationals in Turkey is important
Created after 1989 when Bulgaria emerged from the communist regime in Bulgaria with a population of 6.52 million and nearly a million Turks and Muslims participating extensively, the MRF aims to play a major role in the country’s politics after the early general. April 2 elections.
Having secured 13.75 percent of the valid votes with a rapid rise in the last general election on October 2, 2022, the Movement for Change has become the third largest political force in the country with 36 MPs in the 240-seat parliament.
MRF Chairman Mustafa Karadi stated that the Parliament ignored the citizens’ agenda in the past two years and said that the value of every vote is high in these elections.
With the aim of increasing the number of deputies in order to increase their weight in the possible new coalition government, MRF directors stress that the support of dual citizens in Turkey is very important.
It is stated that justified demands such as the teaching of the Turkish language as a compulsory subject in Bulgaria and the removal of Bulgarian names, which were forcibly given to the Turkish minority and which still exist in the bills, can be expressed more forcefully in the case of dual citizenship. Those who live in Turkey go to the polls in this election.
