Bulgarian Socialist Party leader Ninova fails in bid to exclude Stanishev from European Parliament candidate list

Случилото се на пленума на социалистите е буря в чаша вода, която отклонява общественото внимание от наистина важните проблеми

Former leader Stanishev was going to contest Ninova’s seat if he was not included in the party’s electoral list

The leader of the Bulgarian Socialist Party, Kornelia Ninova, has failed in her attempt to exclude Party of European Socialists president Sergei Stanishev from the BSP list of candidates for Bulgaria’s May 26 2019 European Parliament elections.

This was the outcome of a meeting of the Bulgarian Socialist Party plenum, that lasted for a marathon 11 hours on April 14.

The list approved by the BSP national council puts Stanishev in a possibly electable fifth place.

Ninova’s list had omitted his name altogether. The move comes after months of tensions between Ninova and Stanishev, who led the BSP from 2001 to 2014 and was prime minister in Bulgaria’s tripartite coalition government from 2005 to 2009.
