Protesters, who have been gathering in Bulgaria for more than a month to demand the resignation of Prime Minister Boiko Borisov, have threatened to block the extraordinary plenary session in parliament planned for Thursday if the chairman does not announce his resignation.
The announcement was published by activists on the Internet and also appears in local media. Its purpose is to increase pressure on the government that it has accused of collaborating with corrupt practices. The demonstrators again blocked several areas of the capital Sofia this Wednesday.
The socialist opposition and the Bulgarian President Rumen Radev support these mobilizations, in which, in addition to the resignation of the President and the Prosecutor General Ivan Geshev, the early elections planned for March 2021 are called for.
For its part, the government has warned that it will not act “under the pressure of street protests”, despite Borisov repeatedly hinting at a hypothetical resignation.
