Country Reports

GERB wins again in sixth parliamentary election in a row and is also victorious in the European elections

by Norbert Beckmann-Dierkes, Borislaw Wankow

The incumbent Prime Minister Nikolai Denkov of PP-DB was to be replaced by Maria Gabriel of GERB, but this did not materialise due to internal contradictions within PP-DB.
