The official delegation of the Bulgarian conservative Order, Law and Justice (RZS) party held a meeting late Friday with leaders of the US Republican party in New York.

During the meeting the American politicians have expressed a serious desire to offer support to the Bulgarian conservatives.

The conservatives, led by party leader, Yane Yanev and party members, Atanas Semov and Zhivko Temelkov were met in New York by Dan Halloran, who is a Republican, Libertarian, Independence and Conservative member of the New York City City Council.

Holloran greeted the Bulgarian delegation with: “The Republican Party stands by you, by RZS and Yane Yanev. You can count on us any time!”

The meeting brought a conclusion to a series of intense discussions with high-ranking American politicians, including former US Defense Minister, Donald Rumsfeld.

During the conversation with Halloran, the parties have exchanged ideas about the need t change Bulgaria’s Constitution in order to provide citizens with more opportunities to control State and local power structures. Yanev had appraised the US Republicans with his party’s effort to call a national referendum for a new Constitution, a move strongly acclaimed by Holloran.

Dan Holloran had further accepted to visit Sofia in the summer and share his experience in constitutional law, municipal management, and campaign organization. The Republican leader has agreed to lead a training course for the RZS candidates for the local elections in 2011, and invited Yanev to send young leaders to New York for education and training that would be financed by the Republican Party and the City Council. Other high-ranking Republicans have further stated their readiness to serve as moderators along with their teams for the RZS election campaign.

Yanev is said to have been very pleased upon the meeting’s conclusion by the support and the exchange of ideas.

“RZS is the voice of the Republican Party in Bulgaria and we will help you in any possible way so that you can bring real democracy to Bulgaria and Europe, as we do in America,” Holloran is quoted as saying.

We need your support so can keep delivering news and information about Bulgaria! Thank you!
