Socialist Party Seeks to Reform Electoral Law

The Socialist party in Bulgaria, in power for only three weeks at the head of a fragile government, promised on Tuesday to reform the electoral law in a bid to defuse the street protests that have resumed with new momentum despite last month's election, Reuters reported.
Thousands of Bulgarians have been demonstrating in Sofia and other cities since Friday demanding the resignation of the new government after it squandered its credibility by hurriedly naming a powerful media figure as head of national security.
"We will work to speed up changes ... as having fair elections is a cause not only for the citizens but also for the democratic parties," senior Socialist legislator Maya Manolova told non-government organizations in parliament.
