Bulgaria President: After 25 Years We Set the Start of the Direct Democracy in Bulgaria

“Since the very first day of my mandate as Head of the State I have been fighting for the direct democracy to find its realisation in Bulgaria. I am proud of the fact that two referendums were held within my term of office and there will be a third one. There is nothing better for a country than asking for citizens’ opinion.”
This is what President of the Republic of Bulgaria Rosen Plevneliev said speaking in the town of Koprivshtitsa where he attended the marking of the 140th anniversary since the April Uprising in a commentary on the amendments adopted by the Bulgarian parliament to the Election Code and the proposal for a new referendum with six questions this year, the press centre of the President’s Office announced.
President Plevneliev expressed support to the organisation of a third referendum, adding that the final decision should be carefully considered with regard of the suspicions that some of the proposed questions were anti-constitutional.
“Citizens should not be addressed over issues with populist notion or such that support one or another political subject in the realisation of narrowly party-related issues.
There is nothing better than combining national elections with a referendum when we ask the citizens about important issues – how we want to enrich our democracy, to make the state system work to the interest of the citizens, to make it more efficient, transparent and predictable.
