Protesters in Bulgarian capital Sofia who walked out against the cabinet proposal of PM hopeful Plamen Oresharski have reached the square in front of the President's Office.

Earlier Tuesday evening the ralliers blocked traffic on the symbolic Orlov Most (Eagles Bridge) intersection.

The Facebook organized rally was propmted by the perception that some of the minister nominees in Oresharski's project have ties to murky business structures.

Ralliers are shouting slogans such as "Mafia," "Bulgaria wake up!" and "Red trash," referring to the Bulgarian Socialist Party, on the mandate of which the Oresharski proposal was formed.

They have also used a pun, calling the former Bulgarian Minister of Finance "Oligarski" in reference of his alleged serving the interests of the oligarchy.

After lingering at Orlov Most, the rally started along the main Tsar Osvoboditel Blvd, escorted by the police, towards the President's Office at the Nezavisimost Sq.
