Another ex-MP Leaving Bulgaria's Patriotic Front
Monday, 20th February 2017

Former lawmaker Valentin Nikolov has quit the Patriotic Front coalition, rejecting its move to run together with far-right Ataka party in the upcoming early election.

Nikolov has followed the example of Dimitar Bayraktarov, calling the coalition "unprincipled" in an interview with private broadcaster NOVA TV.

The Patriotic Front shook hands with Ataka last year, after a long feud between PF co-chair Valeri Simeonov and Ataka leader Volen Siderov.

Nikolov has said more PF members will leave the coalition soon.

The so-called United Patriots - the name of PF's coalition with Ataka - raised the candidacy of Krasimir Karakachanov in the presidential election in November.  Karakachanov came third.

Meanwhile some media outlets, such as the news websites Mediapool and OffNews report another former PF lawmaker, Slavi Binev - who has also served as MEP and has sparked controversy with a clerical title - has quit the coalition and is now poised to join the liberal, ethnic Turk-dominated Movement for Rights and Freedoms (DPS).

The PF parties have portrayed the DPS has one of its main enemies in Bulgarian politics for being "pro-Turkish".

Bulgarian MEP Barekov Promises Free iPhones in Schools
Saturday, 18th February 2017

Each school student should be handed an iPhone due to the intensive development of mobile technologies, Bulgarian MEP Barekov said while unveiling his program.

Presenting his party's platform ahead of the early vote on March 26, Barekov pointed to that as the only socio-economic promise he would make for the election.

His Recharge Bulgaria Movement will run on an anti-corruption platform which includes putting all officials under scrutiny and checking their assests for a period dating ten years back and the threat of criminal prosecution looming on every politician who falsely denies having any stakes in an offshore company.

All concession and public procurement contracts will also be revized, whereas politicians elected to an office will be subjected to a polygraph test.
