Voting took place for the Parliamentary elections of Bulgaria on Sunday. The elections are a test for Prime Minister Boyko Borissov.
“We showed what we have achieved,” Borissov said after casting his ballot, thanking his allies in the conservative European People’s Party for their support.
He also thanked the European Commission, the EU executive, for 1.3 million additional COVID-19 vaccine shots, which the country will receive in the second quarter.
Opinion polls suggest Borissov’s centre-right GERB will again be the largest party, with 28-29% of the vote, but will fall short of a majority
The main challenger to GERB, the Socialists, lay about five to 10 percentage points behind the frontrunner.
