D the lassos for us were cast in hope, not revulsion. This was stated by the candidate of the local coalition “BSP for Bulgaria”, Vanya Grigorova, who lost the second round of the local elections in Sofia according to the first exit poll results of sociological agencies.
“We gave the citizens hope and offered them a path to freedom,” said Grigorova.
She expressed her gratitude to all the citizens who came out to vote on election day, to her colleagues from the trade unions, as well as to the coalition of left parties and coalitions that nominated her candidacy.
Despite the problems on election day and the smearing, we remain hopeful, we believe that she is alive, and we believe that freedom is at hand, said Vanya Grigorova. The morning is wiser than the evening, we have nothing more to say today as there are no official data yet, she added.
When asked if he will become a Bulgarian statesman, a left-wing politician of a new type, Grigorova replied that he already is.
I am already a Bulgarian left-wing politician of a new typeGrigorova also commented.
The Chairman of the Coalition Council of “Levitsa!” Kostadin Paskalev said that there is only one institution to which there are no thanks, and that is the government. Paskalev commented that the government, represented by the Prime Minister, the Minister of e-Government and the Minister of Internal Affairs, “undermined the confidence of the citizens and affected the activity” in the second round of the elections.
“Instead of the election becoming a celebration of democracy, it has become a memorial service for democracy,” he said. According to Pascalev, they should wait for the final results and then announce who won the elections. I’m pretty sure we’ll have a reason to celebrate tomorrow, he added.
Thanks to all the voters who voted for us. We thank Vanya Grigorova for the worthy fight. We’re not going to talk about the machine vote and what happened to it, or the invalid ballots. We thank our coalition partners.
That’s what he said Ivan Takov from BSP – Sofia.
We will wait for the final results, nothing is clear yet. I am convinced that we have succeeded. Tomorrow it will be finally clear what the results are. We are convinced that we will be able to implement this mandate, said Takov.
I thank Vanya Grigorova for the courage she showed. For the way he behaved in the campaign, for the messages he sent to Sofia. Let me say that there is only one institution to which I have no gratitude, and that is the government. In the face of the prime minister and the minister of the MEU, who destroyed the trust of the citizens and affected the activity. Filming, transcribing, saying that all parties buy votes; the statement of the prime minister that the CEC is responsible for the organization of the elections is something that has a precedent in Bulgarian history. I think we should wait for the final results, and then announce who won the elections, said Kostadin Paskalev
