The Alternative for Bulgaria National Movement and the Bulgarian Voice Party will run on joint lists in the European and national parliament elections on June 9. Nikolay Drenchev MP, one of the founders of Alternative for Bulgaria, and representatives of the two entities called a briefing in Parliament on Friday.

Drenchev said they have a duty to the Bulgarians and know what is expected from them: less partisanship, more professionalism, more unity in dealing with the problems that face the country and are relevant to Bulgarian citizens.

Georgi Popov of Bulgarian Voice, the party founded by former gambling mogul Vasil Bojkov, said: "The voice of decent Bulgarians is not heard. It is not represented either in the National Assembly or in the European Parliament."

Independent MPs Drenchev, Ivo Ruschev and Aleksandar Arangelov, former MPs of Vazrazhdane, and two independent municipal councillors are part of Alternative for Bulgaria.

In February, when the Sofia Municipal Council elected Tsvetomir Petrov as its temporary chairman, Vazrazhdane expelled four municipal councillors who backed the nominee of Continue the Change - Democratic Bulgaria - Save Sofia.

Drenchev, Rouschev and Arangelov were expelled from the parliamentary group after the Sofia chapter of Vazrazhdane decided that they must take political responsibility for having nominated the four municipal councillors in the local elections in 2023, but the three refused to comply and became independent MPs.
