46 days of anti-government protests in Bulgaria

Sunday was the 46th day in a row of protests in Bulgaria, where thousands of protesters continue to call for the resignation of the government and the general prosecutor. President Rumen Radev is also calling for the government’s resignation and wants “the Mafia out of executive power and the prosecution”.

Prime Minister Boyko Borissov has no intention to resign.

Instead his ruling party GERB introduced a draft for a new Constitution which strengthens the powers of the general prosecutor and cuts the president’s power.

The brutal police violence which occurred during the first days of the protests has not yet been investigated or punished. (Krassen Nikolov | EURACTIV.bg)
