The politician about the scandal during the draw for the ballots
“The battle of VMRO for many years is to limit the influence of the Republic of Turkey in Bulgarian internal politics. We see that in all the sections there, voting is done in order for a certain political party, and with the participation of the Turkish state and the Turkish services”. This was commented by Yulian Angelov from VMRO, general secretary of the party and chairman of the pre-election headquarters, on the air of the program “Your Day” on NOVA NEWS.
The politician added that they have repeatedly provided video materials from the sections in Turkey.
“In all elections, we send observers from VMRO to the sections to supervise. There are thousands of footage, thousands of signals that we have submitted to all institutions in Bulgaria about what is happening. We see in the Republic of Turkey how some people fill out the declarations of our emigrants who are from Bulgaria, and they vote under orders for a certain party. That’s why we suggested that every Bulgarian citizen fill out the declaration in his own hand in front of the members of the sectional commission, so that there is no controlled vote,” said Angelov.
Angelov recalled that last year VMRO made several protests before the CEC about the votes in Turkey, about the declarations and about the falsifications of the elections there.
“The CEC did not react in any way. They didn’t hear our opinion. That’s why I took a personal approach when the ballot numbers were drawn, to show my civic position, the position of VMRO and 90% of Bulgarians,” said the politician.
