Amidst mounting political tensions and uncertainty in the country, Delyan Peevski, chairman of the DPS (Movement for Rights and Freedoms), has declared that it is inevitable that Bulgaria will head to elections. Peevski's statement, made on the sidelines of the parliament, reflects a growing sentiment among political leaders that the country is on the brink of a significant electoral showdown.

"It is clear that we are going to elections. Everything else that happens is some farce and grief," remarked Peevski, underscoring the urgency of the situation. He emphasized the need for political leaders to maintain dignity and allow the people to decide their fate through the ballot box.

Peevski's remarks come amidst heightened political maneuvering and failed attempts to form a government, with coalition negotiations yielding no tangible results. Despite efforts to avert elections, Peevski lamented the inability to reach consensus, signaling a need to move forward and let the electorate determine the nation's path.

Meanwhile, Stanislav Balabanov, an MP from "There Is Such a People" party, echoed Peevski's sentiments, emphasizing the need to end the political "agony" and proceed to elections. Balabanov criticized other political formations for what he deemed as hypocrisy, asserting that his party is prepared for elections to halt the mockery of Bulgarian citizens.

Responding to questions about the potential for a government with a second mandate, Balabanov expressed skepticism, citing concerns over the credibility and integrity of certain political actors. He accused rival parties of greed and dependency, asserting that his party does not expect truthfulness from certain individuals, including former Prime Minister Boyko Borissov.

The looming prospect of elections has ignited a flurry of political rhetoric and speculation, as parties jostle for position and seek to rally support ahead of the anticipated vote.
