A scandal over xenophobia and hate speech has ignited the candidate for vice president of the leader of “Vazrazhdane” Kostadin Kostadinov – Elena Guncheva.

Her words against the ethnic minorities were signaled by the organization of the Jews in Bulgaria “Shalom”. They sent a letter to the Central Election Commission, Prosecutor General Ivan Geshev and the chairman of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), Ann Linde.

“Karaday, Lorer, Passy, ​​Moasse are actively involved in our politics today … somehow I miss the Bulgarians in Bulgarian politics, on Bulgarian soil, in the Bulgarian state. Nothing personal, everyone has rights, but! Don’t forget that this is the land of the Bulgarians and you are just guests “, reads one of Guncheva’s posts on her personal Facebook profile.

The CEC strongly condemned these words at yesterday’s meeting, but the commission has no right to interfere in the messages of the candidates for deputies and presidents on social networks, even though they are part of a campaign.

“I regret that the CEC cannot intervene in the case, as such behavior is indeed beyond morality, and I do not think we should ignore this type of statement at all,” the CEC member said at yesterday’s meeting. Elka Stoyanova. The commission voted unanimously to declare all forms of aggression, racism, anti-Semitism and hate speech.

However, Guncheva did not withdraw her words, but repeated them. To Shalom: Bulgaria and Bulgarians are not dirty words! And yes, Bulgaria is the country of the Bulgarians! ”He wrote again on Facebook.

Apart from being a candidate for vice president, the lawyer is also the leader of the list of the Vazrazhdane party in Plovdiv.
