Almost 800 Bulgarian troops stationed on missions abroad have the opportunity to vote in the country's presidential elections on Sunday, the Defense Ministry announced.

The press office of the military said the local commanders of the Bulgarian units on foreign missions have set up polling stations to allow them to vote without any disturbances for their patrolling and peace-keeping responsibilities.

Over 600 Bulgarian rangers and medical staff are eligible to vote in the polling stations in Kabul and Kandahar, where they are part of NATO's ISAF.

Almost 100 Bulgarian soldiers and officers, who are taking part in EU's mission in Bosnia and Herzegovina, are also eligible to vote in the Bulgarian Embassy in Sarajevo.

The dozen Bulgarian troops in the NATO mission in Kosovo have been invited to vote in the Bulgarian Embassy in Prishtina, while the handful Bulgarians that are part of EU military mission in Georgia can vote in the Bulgarian Embassy in Tbilisi, the Defense Ministry said.
