Bulgaria’s Parliament not likely to cut state subsidies for political parties

The National Assembly Committee of Legal Affairs has rejected the proposal of "There is Such a People" party to cut state subsidies for the political parties to 50 eurocents per vote won. The proposal is expected to be rejected in the plenary hall on Friday. Currently, the state subsidy amounts to nearly EUR 4 per vote.

The Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP) called for a "fair subsidy" and announced that they would not accept a drastic cut in the state subsidy. Otherwise, the political parties will start protecting the interests of the backstage players sponsoring parties, contends BSP. The Movement for Rights and Freedoms said that for them even the current state subsidy is equal to zero, because it is beneficial only to the big parties. GERB party has abstained.
