Today (6/11/16) is the Bulgarian Presidential Election...Watch
In all honesty, I wouldn't expect many to be that fazed. But Bulgaria is more important than we think. It is a link between Europe and Asia/ the ME via Turkey. It's strategic position within continental Europe does mean it can offer a solution to the migration crisis.
Not to mention it's black sea connection with Russia. Bulgaria's new president is expected to deal with the growing tension between Russia and the West.
The three front runners are: Tsetska Tsacheva (if elected she will be the first woman president of Bulgaria) who is a member of the already governing GERB party, Gen. Rumen Radev, a former non-partisan chief of Bulgarian Air Force, who is backed by the opposition Socialist Party and expected to finish second. And finally Krasimir Karakachanov, who is backed by three major nationalist formations, ranked third in the latest poll on the wave of widespread concern among Bulgarians over the influx of refugees.
Another interesting thing is that this is a compulsory election, all Bulgarian citizens are required to vote. Do you think compulsory voting is a good thing? if, for example, 100% of the population voted on the recent referendums here, would there have been a very different outcome?
