Bulgarians vote in 2nd parliamentary elections in 3 months

Sofia, Jul 11 (EFE).- Some 6.7 million people in Bulgaria on Sunday cast their ballots in snap parliamentary elections, the second vote in three months.

A total of 23 parties and alliances are running to be part of the 240-seat Parliament, but only six of them will be able to win the minimum 4% of votes to make the cut, polling shows.

No party, however, is on track to obtain the necessary majority to form a government.

In April, Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria (GERB), led by former prime minister Boiko Borisov, won nearly 26% of the votes, but failed to form a coalition.

Voting is being carried out almost exclusively with electronic machines.

Borisov criticized the new technology, accusing the president, Rumen Radev, an ally of the opposition, of wanting to manipulate the results. EFE
