Bulgaria to hold national election on April 4

Bulgarian President Rumen Radev waves after meeting protesters at an anti-government demonstration in Sofia, Bulgaria.

Bulgaria will hold a national election on April 4, the president said on Thursday, completing the full four-year term of the centre-right coalition government after it survived major anti-corruption protests last summer.

President Rumen Radev, who supported the anti-government protests, called the election a week later than the earliest possible date, citing the need for more preparations for a fair vote among challenges arising from the coronavirus pandemic.
