Demonstrators organised a blockade in front of the parliament building in Sofia on Monday, marking a new phase of the anti-government protests that have rocked the country.
Crowds gathered early in front the building, holding signs, Bulgarian flags and chanting «resignation,» asking for Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borissov's government to step down over corruption allegations.
A no confidence vote against the government was expected to take place on Monday, July 20, but was eventually postponed to Tuesday.
Earlier this month, Bulgarian President Rumen Radev demanded the resignation of the government and the end to the «mafia way of ruling» during a televised address. His comments came as tensions escalated in the country after two of the president's aides were arrested in a police raid at Radev's headquarters.
