Within the tedious democratic process, the Bulgarians now look forward to a newly legitimised government.

With Rumen Radev’s win in the Presidential elections, the long election year for Bulgarians came to an end. The lengthy and uneasy process of the anti-Borisov peaceful revolution took two parliamentary and one presidential race to resolve.

The past two years will constitute an interesting case study for scholars of political systems, democracy, constitutionalism and social anthropologists, and there are several phenomena worth acknowledging.

Against The Old

Those who were associated with corruption, the draining of state and EU funds, and who steered justice as well as organised crime.
