Speaking to the media, Bulgarian President Rumen Radev warned that the Constitution seems to be an obstacle for the current government in Sofia as is driven by a lust for power. The President said “it is obvious to everyone that they are suffering from power bulimia.”
Radev said that the current Cabinet, which was formed at the direction of the U.S. Embassy in Sofia, is using each of its own failures as an opportunity to grasp more power. He accused them of conducting an offensive against the democratic balance established by the Constitution and the law.
“This is a confirmation of the maxim that when the State is weak, the mafia is strong. And the State is weak because the current government was conceived in scandalous recordings and disgusting conciliation. At the moment, responsibility is completely diluted,” Radev told reporters, concluding that the government is driving society toward chaos.
“Blacklists of citizens and journalists are being published, media are being pressured, calls for censorship are being made, the Interior Ministry and the services are being taken over to influence the elections and use them for self-interested political and economic goals. Moreover, the political debate is being organized with propaganda groups and threats. There is encroachment on the Constitution and the balances set in it,” the Bulgarian President observed.
