The Bulgarian Socialist Party has formulated the goals of winning the post of President of Bulgaria and of keeping its good positioning in municipal authorities at upcoming 2011 elections.
"2011 elections must be turned in a successful pledge for a new governmental alternative," state the conclusions from the 47th national congress of the party held Saturday in Sofia.
The socialists vowed to fight "the monopolization of power on the part of GERB and the authoritarian tendencies in its rule."
BSP will put out a full fledged electoral strategy by March 2011.
At the forum, socialist leader Sergey Stanishev voiced some remarks regarding a much-debated future "political project" of current President Georgi Parvanov, saying in effect that the socialists will not allow the political left in Bulgaria to be split into two.
