Five parties will make it to Bulgaria's legislature in the upcoming parliamentary election in March, but others also stand a chance, a poll has suggested.According to Alpha Research pollsters' projection, conservative GERB party of Boyko Borisov, which dominated the previous government, will lead by a margin of less than 2%, garnering 31.5% of the vote.Those determined to cast a ballot have given the second-biggest share of support to the Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP), at 29.6%. Next is the nationalist alliance named United Patriots, with 10.8% of the vote, followed by ethnic Turk-dominated, liberal Movement for Rights and Freedoms party (DPS), which will muster 6.8% of the ballots, according to the projection. The last party that will certainly enter parliament is Volya ("Will") of political newbie Veselin Mareshki, with 5.7% of the vote.The Reformist Bloc, a loose alliance of centrist and right-wing parties which was the junior partner in the previous government, will garner some 3.9%, just below the four-percent electoral barrier.This is the right-wing entity that stands the biggest chance to make it through to Parliament, with the other two, New Republic and Yes, Bulgaria, at 1.5% and 2.6%, respectively.ABV, the left-wing party that joined hands with Movement 21 for the election, will get 2.9%, according to Alpha Research.Other parties will get 2%, while those ticking the "I Do Not Support Anyone" option in the ballot will be 2.7% of decided voters.More to follow.
NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg has issued a statement suggesting Macedonia should go on with the formation of a new government.
His message, published on NATO's website, comes as a coalition is yet to be forged two months after an early election, with the second-biggest party SDSM saying it has enough signatures to ask the President for a government mandate.
"The December 2016 election was seen by international observers as an essential step in resolving that crisis," Stoltenberg writes in a reference to the political crisis that has been raging on for more than two years.
"It was judged to have been well-administered and to have proceeded without major incidents. Following one attempt to form a government, it has been announced that, in line with the requirement specified by the President, enough MPs' signatures have now been collected."
"I look to the authorities in Skopje to fulfil the next step in the democratic process. I call on all parties to exercise restraint in statements and actions, and take decisions for the benefit of all citizens," Stoltenberg notes.
The Alliance's head adds that NATO remains "committmed to the membership of [Macedonia]... in line with the decision made at the 2008 Bucharest Summit."
Last week, an agreement was reached between the Social Democratic Union of Macedonia (SDSM) and the Democratic Union for Integration (DUI), the largest ethnic Albanian party after the vote.
SDSM leader Zoran Zaev now says he has gathered enough signatures (67 out of 120 lawmakers) to ask President Gjorge Ivanov for the mandate, after the latter had said he would only hand it out to a party which proves it can create a goverment.
However, Macedonian media outlets report that President Ivanov's administration is unaware of a meeting due on Monday.
Zaev earlier told Kurir, a Serbian-language newspaper, he would get the mandate to form a new government on Monday, weeks after the biggest party VMRO-DPMNE failed to secure a parliamentary majority.
VMRO-DPMNE's leader Nikola Gruevski meanwhile wrote on Facebook he would support a government led by Zaev, his main political opponent, only if the "Albanian platform" - which includes several demands of ethnic Albanian parties - was abandoned and Albanian language was not made a second official one alongside Macedonia.
