“We will see if it is the best solution in the elections,” said Vice President Iliana Yotova, commenting on the news announced by President Rumen Radev on Saturday, namely that the presidential and parliamentary elections will be 2 in 1 on November 14, 2021.
Surprisingly, without even being asked by BNT presenter Georgi Lyubenov why Radev has chosen a 2 in 1 election she said: “We have not done thin calculations with the president. Will it be November 14 or 21?
“Radev was absolutely right – this saves a lot of effort and money.
In the end, we will see if the decision was appropriate on November 14. These 2-in-1 elections will be a precedent in the history of Bulgaria, “she added.
“It will be a difficult mixed campaign. Undoubtedly, there will be a mixture of campaigns for president and parliament, but we will pass them, “said Yotova, who, when asked if they already have a campaign headquarters with Radev, added:” We have everything we need for the upcoming vote – in January. ” .
“It simply came to our notice then Yordan Tsonev’s words that MRF will do everything possible for Radev not to win a second presidential term.
This is not news.
“We do not feel threatened by Tsonev or any other political leader,” she said confidently.
Yotova also commented whether the caretaker ministers Kiril Petkov and Asen Vassilev will form a new party:
“I have not heard any of the suspected ministers in question say that they will form a party. If someone wants to make a political intrigue and make a new party, then this is his decision.
I do not know why the caretaker Prime Minister Stefan Yanev said he would vote for them. Ask him.
“My political affiliation has long been resolved – BSP. I want to hear the BSP’s assessment of me and whether I have lived up to their expectations.
I maintain very close contacts with people from the BSP and I have not heard any concern on the left from any hypothetical new project, “Yotova said of the allegations that there is a rift between the BSP and Radev, who refuses to answer a question whether he is behind the project of Petkov and Vassilev.
“I have no worries that the BSP will nominate another presidential couple and withdraw support for me and Radev. I think we will get the support of the Socialists, “she added, and when asked if it is possible that the BSP presidential candidate is Yanaki Stoilov, he said:” Who said that? Yavor Dachkov? I don’t know if he became a party member of the BSP? “
BLITZ recalls that yesterday and Georgi Kadiev hinted that there may be a separation between BSP and Radev and the left to nominate another presidential candidate.
EXPECT DETAILS IN BLITZ!
