Anyone who fears that he cannot win the election is looking to tarnish it. That is why it is very important that we all vote to neutralize these attempts to take us back to the past. This was stated by President Rumen Radev when asked about the decision of the CEC to count the receipts from the vote by machine in all sections.
The election administration should implement the law and I trust that it will do its job in good faith, the head of state was categorical. I believe that Bulgaria will be a democratic and legal state, despite attempts to bring it back, he added.
I voted for freedom, law and justice, these are the values I profess. The stakes in these elections are huge and will determine whether the ongoing processes of rehabilitating the state will continue or the backstage will regain institutional power, Radev said after launching his vote. And he called on all Bulgarians to vote.
According to him, the first horizon, which is the most important, is to form a government that Bulgaria needs, with sustained support from parliament.
The President began his speech with condolences to the relatives of those killed in the incident in the COVID ward at the hospital in Sliven.
When asked by a Macedonian journalist about RS Macedonia’s membership in the EU, Radev reminded that he had clearly stated the Bulgarian position to all European leaders: hatred, in the cessation of the systemic de-Bulgarianization and of the attempts for systematic destruction and falsification of the millennial Bulgarian historical and cultural heritage. And the start of negotiations will not depend on the next new government and a new parliament, but rather on the PCM itself, which must take appropriate action. I am convinced that only by open dialogue between Sofia and Skopje, and not by lobbying in front of European capitals, will we build the real friendly relations that people on both sides of the border expect.
