“Mr. Radev is not in time with the political processes in the country. If you have observed, the last two weeks there has been quite a lot of tension between the parties, each party is fighting for its electorate and the way it sees the country moving forward. The only thing in common is, that we are looking to have a normal European country, and not to look east towards Moscow” – this is what Finance Minister Asen Vassilev said at a briefing in response to a journalist’s question.
“People managed to elect mayors who will work for the improvement of their city. In different cities, these are representatives of different political forces. PP-DB won in the runoff in several key cities – Sofia, Varna, Blagoevgrad, Pazardzhik. This shows that a large part of the Bulgarian cities have preferred to change their previous management model,” Vassilev also commented.
This is also the first comment for today from “We continue the change – Democratic Bulgaria”, since a statement is expected since last night after Vasil Terziev’s meeting with the party leaders.
Yesterday, the PP-DB candidate who won in Sofia with less than 5,000 votes was laconic in front of the media, saying only:
“I want to thank all the people of Sofia who came out to vote today”, “I want to thank everyone who supported me and our candidates for district mayors. I also want to thank the people in the sectional election commissions whose work is just beginning to they can keep the vote”, When there are final results, we will give a press conference. Expect an invitation from us tomorrow to discuss the results with the political leaders and answer any questions.”
A statement from the PP-DB was expected today at 11 a.m., but according to the latest information, there will be one around 1 p.m.
