site.btaFulfilled Cabinet-Forming Mandate Return Prompts Protest in Front of President’s Administration
People gathered on Monday in front of the presidential building at a protest organised by "The Left!" against the "violation of statehood and political cynicism", shortly before representatives of the Continue the Change - Democratic Bulgaria (CC-DB) coalition returned the second government-forming mandate to the head of State Rumen Radev fulfilled.
The Left! leader Maya Manolova was among the protesters who met the CC-DB MPs upon arrival with catcalls and then listened to Mendelsohn's "Wedding March", allegedly ridiculing the "marriage" of the two largest parliamentary forces.
While CC Co-Chair Kiril Petkov was getting out of his vehicle and heading towards the Presidency, one of the protesters, a man dressed like a priest and holding a cross, rushed towards him. The police intervened promptly, caught the man and returned him back to the crowd.
