Abstract

Bulgarians will vote in a parliamentary election on 26 March. Dimitar Bechev argues that this time, the tide may be turning against Sofia’s most established politico and former PM Boyko Borisov, as polls suggest a neck and neck race between his centre-right party GERB and the Socialists. However, the next government will likely encompass a broad coalition and the real winner of the election is set to be the nationalist United Patriots’ alliance, which is forecast to gain a sizeable share of the vote. The deck of cards will therefore be reshuffled, but no dramatic turnarounds are in sight.
