A new political formation, Citizens Alliance for Real Democracy, GORD, headed by MEP Slavi Binev, was officially launched on Sunday, a year before Bulgaria holds parliamentary elections.
GORD's founders describe it as a political club of prominent figures who want to lead Bulgaria back on the road to democracy, the state-run Bulgarian National Television (BNT) reported.
The formation will act as an economic and social corrective of the incumbent government, Binev said, as quoted by BNT. He added the government was responsible for aggravating the crisis in the country, which is both economic, political and spiritual. According to GORD, a solution should be sought in improving education.
In 2009 Binev was elected MEP on the ticket of nationalist party Ataka which he subsequently left.
