The PP, founded in September by two former entrepreneurs, graduates of the famous American Harvard University, received about three percent more votes than the favored, 2009 ruling populist Citizens for the European Development of Bulgaria (GERB), with Prime Minister Boyko Borisov. a former police officer and bodyguard of Bulgarian politicians.

Petkov said yesterday that he was ready to take over the prime minister’s position, which he had already started negotiating with a coalition of three right-wing parties, called “Democratic Bulgaria” (DB), which received six percent of the vote, and the populist party “Such is the People” by Slava Trifonov. which won 9.6 percent of the vote.

According to analysts, all these parties will not be able to form a new government without the participation of the Socialists, who have the support of almost 10 percent of voters.

The winning PP ruled out any co-operation with the ruling GERB so far, as well as with the Turkish minority party “Movement for Freedom and Pavda” (which received 13.7 per cent of the vote), which supported Borisov and his party for ten years.

These elections were, by the way, the third in a row this year – after the previous ones, held in April and July, when no party managed to form a government. Whether it is the “third happiness” remains to be seen.

Voting also took place in the presidential elections, and the current head of state, Rumen Radev, will have a convincing advantage ahead of the second round.
