The Prime Minister academician Nikolay Denkov had his machine stopped, and he had to wait for it to be fixed.
However, he realized his vote not on paper.
After exercising his right to vote, Denkov gave a brief statement to the media.
“I voted for a European, modern capital, as Sofia should be,” said Prime Minister Nikolay Denkov.
Asked whether, after the blunder with his machine voting, he still holds to the claim that this is the safer vote, he stated: “These problems that we see are the result of the poor coordination between the institutions, and especially here the responsibility lies with the CEC. I do not want more to comment on today. Obviously, after the elections are over, we have to ask ourselves how we restore trust in the electoral process.”
Denkov called for active voting on the day of the runoff – regardless of whether it is by machine or by paper.
Answering a journalist’s question as to whether he had received an answer from the president about the requested resignation of the head of DANS, Denkov stated that the topic would be commented upon after the elections.
Asked why he wants the resignation of the head of DANS, but not of the deputy minister of e-government, since he is in an obvious violation of the law, Denkov answered: “There are elections going on right now. The Ministry of e-government also has certain commitments for them. Nobody do not touch an institution at a time when it has such responsibilities. Tomorrow we will talk about this topic”.
And he explained his trip to Israel and his meeting with Benjamin Netanyahu with the “huge tension and the need for the right balance”: “The point of view of the Israeli side must be heard, we must be careful that the other side has humanitarian support.” Denkov also stated that it was not a question of Bulgarian military support for Israel at all.
