There is a will to reexamine the full smoking ban in public spaces, says Plamen Oresharski, the nomination for Prime Minister of the Bulgarian Socialist Party, BSP.

Speaking for TV7, Oresharski explained he was "regretfully" a smoker, but this fact does not and would not have any influence on his opinion and future decisions about the ban.

"Actually, my decision is not that important because this is a law that must be voted by 50% + 1 in the Parliament. I think that definitely there is readiness to reexamine the smoking ban without making any revolutionary changes," he said, noting the idea was to find a balanced solution which would be acceptable for both non-smokers and smokers.
