Vanya Grigorova has announced her entry into a triple coalition for the upcoming parliamentary elections, unveiling the alliance under the banner of "Solidary Bulgaria."

Grigorova, a former trade unionist and candidate for mayor of Sofia, revealed the formation of the coalition during an interview with BNT. The coalition, comprising Maya Manolova's "Stand up, Bulgaria!" movement along with the Bulgarian Left party and "United Social Democracy," marks a strategic alliance aimed at consolidating political forces ahead of the polls.

Negotiations for the coalition's formation commenced promptly following the announcement of early elections, underscoring the urgency and significance of uniting disparate political factions under a common agenda.

While Grigorova will lead the coalition's list in select constituencies, the specifics of her candidacy remain undisclosed, emphasizing her commitment to collective leadership over individual prominence.

In justifying her foray into national politics, Grigorova emphasized the multifaceted nature of governance, dismissing the notion of politics as a single-layered endeavor confined to municipal affairs. Her decision to transition from local to national politics reflects a broader ambition to enact change on a broader scale, transcending the confines of municipal bureaucracy.

Despite the formation of "Solidary Bulgaria," Grigorova downplayed competition with rival political entities, including the Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP), asserting that collaboration on shared policy objectives takes precedence over partisan rivalry.

With the deadline for coalition registration looming, Grigorova highlighted the logistical constraints of forming alliances in the eleventh hour, emphasizing the need for proactive engagement in the political process.

Looking beyond the elections, Grigorova hinted at post-electoral collaborations with various parties and coalitions, underscoring her commitment to advancing common policy goals through cross-party cooperation.
