Plevneliev: Root Cause of Major Problems Lies in Judiciary, Election Process

Addressing Parliament on Tuesday, President Rosen Plevneliev said the root cause of almost all major problems in Bulgaria lay in the judiciary and the election process. "That is why I strongly support a deep, comprehensive judicial reform and a national referendum on election rules," he said. In June Plevneliev submitted a proposal to Parliament that a national referendum on some of the main principles of the Bulgarians' election rights be held at the same time as the October 25 local elections. He suggests three questions: about the election of MPs in accordance with the majority voting system; the introduction of compulsory voting in elections and national referendums; and the introduction of electronic voting.
