Bulgarians go to the polls. Again....

Bulgarians headed to the polls on Sunday in a third parliamentary election this year, with opinion polls suggesting yet another inconclusive result.

An election for the largely ceremonial post of president will also be held on Sunday. Polls show incumbent Rumen Radev, 58, is poised to win re-election for a second five-year term after a likely run-off vote on November 21st.

Bulgaria has been in the grip of political inertia since April, when an election ended the decade-long rule of former Prime Minister Boyko Borissov and his centre-right GERB party following massive anti-corruption protests against him last year.

Thousands of Bulgarians joined street protests in mid-2020, accusing Borissov of cosying up with the chief prosecutor to benefit local oligarchs and businesses close to his GERB party.

Borissov denies any wrongdoing.
