“The country is literally broken. We have rehabilitated over 2,500 blocks in Bulgaria. And they took it out of the recovery plan,” said GERB leader Boyko Borisov at the opening of his party’s campaign in Razgrad.
“This is the easiest campaign. Because when Cornelia Ninova talks about the Borisov model, here is the price of electricity in August 2020 – BGN 75. With the new model, it is many times more expensive. Choose, people. I more I will not go to elections or campaigning. The coal is Bulgarian and in the Bulgarian underground. They have been there for centuries. The miners, energy workers, engineers are Bulgarian. Their salaries have not increased. Where did this promotion come from? “Kozloduy” is working at max and electricity costs BGN 45 and is sold for BGN 1,800. Why did they leave this out,” Boyko Borisov accused the former leaders of “We continue the change”.
“Here is the increase in the price of food products. What made your oil go up? There are as many sunflowers as you want. The electricity is ours, the land is ours, the peasants are ours, the harvesters too. What raised your price? There is no commodity that has not gone up, after like our model, it is gone. On October 2, judge. We can remove half of them,” Borisov also stated.
“When the numbers speak and the intermediaries are silent. Here are the prices of natural gas – it is 837% more expensive now than here,” he added and showed graphs in front of the hall with sympathizers. “Under the bad GERB, diesel was BGN 2.09, this is how it grew, and when Kiril and Asen left, it fell a little because the commissions are less. I will not argue who is better. Here is for the people to choose. The prices on gasoline do you see it going up,” he demonstrated.
“What will we do when we return,” continued the demonstration Borisov. “The refinery is ours and a derogation was won for Russian oil. But Russian oil is imported by a Swiss company, produced offshore and exported to Switzerland. 1/3 of gasoline and naphtha remain here at a price BGN 1.20 higher , the others go to be sold in Europe. If we are in the government, we as early as October 3 or the refinery agrees to work for BEH on Ishleme and gasoline immediately drops by lev-lev and twenty. Option 2 is a duty of 1 lev on each liter”, Borisov explained GERB’s plans. The duty will be refunded at the rate of BGN per liter charged at each refueling.
“I’m not promising you these things, I’ve been doing them for 12 years. In 2009, we came to the conditions of the biggest crisis in the world. And we kept the Bulgarians from feeling it. Then the migration crisis hit us. They were rightly told to they don’t talk about geopolitics, because they spoke against Turkish President Recep Erdogan. And this geopolitics is not easy at all,” said Boyko Borisov.
“When we made “Balkan Stream”, it was at the service of everyone – Turkey, Bulgaria, Serbia, North Macedonia. That’s why President Erdogan, when he had problems, came to Varna. And I brought the president of the EC, of the EU. We did joint projects and we behaved as a team. And they don’t understand these things. When I went to America, they welcomed me at the fireplace in the White House, not on the stairs. And this is a sign,” Borisov also said in an address to “We continue the change”, writes “24 o’clock”.
“In one month, over BGN 900 million have been given to gas intermediaries. Imagine what would happen if we gave this money to Razgrad, Targovishte, Shumen,” continued the GERB leader. He made a commitment in the next mandate to direct investments to the improvement of small towns.
Borisov listed as commitments 100% diversification from Russian gas, the purchase of eight more F-16 fighters, Bulgaria’s entry into the Eurozone.
