Bulgaria's former foreign minister and current member of the European Parliament, Nadezhda Neynski, formerly Mihaylova, has confirmed plans to join the race for president in the autumn.
"I believe I am fit to run for the presidential office, which is the reason why I have agreed that my party debates my nomination," Neynski told the morning broadcast of Nova TV channel on Friday.
"It does not matter what I think about my chances to win the elections. What my party thinks is what matters most."
She stressed that the most important issue during the run-up to the presidential elections should be the debate about the prerogatives of the head of state office and warned of the danger of disappointment.
Nadezhda Neynski has been the name most often mentioned by media and public as a possible right-wing candidate. A recent poll has shown she enjoys about 10% support.
