Bulgaria: Thousands flood streets in 13th day of anti-govt. protests in Sofia

For the 13th day in a row, thousands of people gathered for anti-government protest in Sofia on Tuesday. Crowds gathered holding signs, Bulgarian flags and chanting «resignation,» demanding Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borissov's government steps down over corruption allegations and Ivan Geshev to step away as the leader of the prosecutor's office. «With the EU money voted today, Bulgaria is setting up a new 'corruption minority,'» said Velislav Velichkov, Chairman of Justice for All organisation. «That's why we ask their resignation. For all of them, Resign, resign,» he added. A no-confidence vote against the government was expected to take place on Monday, July 20, but was 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.
