The Bulgarian parliament re-approved the bill to amend the election law and President Rumen Radev rejected the veto. In the veto vote, 125 deputies from the GERB-SDS coalition, the Movement for Rights and Freedoms (MRF) and the Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP) alliance voted against it, while 101 deputies from other political forces voted for it.
Representatives of the We Continuing to Change party, the Vizrajan party, and the Democratic Union of the Bulgarian Alliance, accused the political forces that rejected the veto decision, as they put it, of political hypocrisy, conspiracy against the integrity of the elections, and attacking democracy. .
PP Co-Chairman Asen Vasilev said: “Messi from Bankya staged the whole circus to involve the BSP in intrigues and to sabotage the work of this Parliament and the possibility of forming a government. Tell yourself the truth – you and Messi want Bankya to falsify the results of the next local elections, stir up discord in Parliament, and that’s why Cause you put together an entire circus show,” he said.
Deputies of the Bulgarian Alliance Democratic Union warned that they will submit to the Constitutional Court some provisions of the draft law amending the election law. European Parliament lawmakers responded to the GERB that the amendments to the law were not unconstitutional.
The head of the HÖH, Mustafa Karadayi, accused his opponents of demagoguery. “You create demagoguery by writing that voting is compulsory on the one hand, and you are proud of restricting the voting rights of citizens with restrictions not provided for in the Constitution, on the other hand,” said Caraday.
Borislav Gutsanov, a member of parliament for the BSP coalition, accused his opponents of applying double standards. “Why is the president bizarrely vetoing this law because of some of its paragraphs, but at the same time not vetoing the supply of arms to Ukraine, and how double standards are applied by both the presidency and your political party,” Gutsanov said.
The bill will be sent to the President of the Republic within 7 days to be published in the State Gazette newspaper.
