Bulgaria: President Radev joins Sofia protesters as demo calls for nation-wide strike

President of Bulgaria Rumen Radev joined protesters in the country's capital Sofia on Thursday as protests against Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borissov's government entered their 15th day. «Now is the moment when we get together to start the fight. Next Wednesday let's close all the country. Now and together,» said the organiser of the protest whilst addressing the crowds. Protesters later moved to Sofia's downtown where they blocked main streets. A no-confidence vote against the government was held on Tuesday, which it survived. In an attempt to appease the protesters, Borissov had announced the resignation of four of his ministers. Earlier this month, Radev had 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.
