Bulgarian citizens continued their protests in the capital Sofia, in front of parliament, hours before the vote to withhold confidence from the government of Prime Minister Boyko Porisu, his center-right government and chief prosecutor.
The demonstrators chanted phrases such as “withdrawal” and “mafia” accompanied by whistles, as they stopped traffic on the central avenue of the capital, as parliament was secured by a large police force, and the government camp expects the proposal to withdraw the confidence this Tuesday, and organizers announced the intensification of protests with the siege of streets and buildings Official as well as strikes.
The opposition Socialist (the former Kurdistan Workers Party) was also put up with a proposal to withdraw confidence from the government, which had been in office since May 2017. They justified their initiative for corruption and insufficient anti-corruption measures.
Socialist leader Cornelia Ninewa warned that “European money will not reach Bulgarian citizens as long as the Borisu government rules.”
Borisu has been attending a special European Union summit on the Corona Crisis Management Package in Brussels since Friday, where Nineveh said, “We want to restore our country from the mafia,” referring to street protests.
He said in a televised address to the country: “The transformation of the government into a mafia-like structure has pushed Bulgarian-loving freedom-fighters from all ages, regardless of their political affiliation, to raise demands to respect the law.
