After Months of Anti-Government Protests, Bulgaria Goes to the Polls


SOFIA, Bugaria (AP) – Bulgarians are heading to the polls on Sunday to cast ballots for a new parliament after months of anti-government protests and amid a surge in coronavirus infections.

The 12,000 polling stations opened at 7 a.m. and close at 8 p.m. for the 6.7 million eligible voters who are electing 240 lawmakers.

The vote is widely seen as a referendum on Prime Minister Boyko Borissov. The 61-year-old macho-style political maverick has led his center-right GERB party with an iron grip for more than a decade and now hopes to win his fourth term in office.

Support for Borrissov at home and aboard began to erode after thousands took to the streets accusing his government of meddling with oligarchs, failing to eliminate graft and poverty and overhaul the judicial system.
