Bulgaria to Hold European Parliament Elections on May 25

Bulgaria will hold elections for European Parliament on May 25, President Rosen Plevneliev said.

In a televised address, Plevneliev called on the political parties in the country to hold a constructive debate on Europe's political agenda and try to win back public confidence in the institutions.

The European Parliament is elected for a five-year term. Representation is proportional and the number of seats is allocated in correspondence to the population of each member state.

In May, a total of 751 new members of the European Parliament (MEPs) will be elected. Bulgaria will have 17 MEPs, one less than in the current European Parliament.

Bulgaria joined the European Union in 2007 and held its first European Parliament elections the same year.
