Althrough this is insugnificant compared to all the other countries, we are chosing a president too. So why not cover it? There are obviously other bulgarians too.

Lets start by how chosing a president works based on the latest laws :

1. You have to chose both President and Vice-President.
2. There are 23-24 names to chose. And recently added NOTA(None of the above) which means we can chose to not have a president.
3. A Referendum which will change the political system and make it less corrupt (While the entire government makes excuses to make it invalid)
4. If you do not vote, you lose your right to vote forever.
5. If the top 2 results are close there is a second election (Today)

Today we will vote and see who will be President (Althrough he has no real powers like the american one)

As always, there is lot of political drama and both choices are bad. One is the same party that has been arround for 8 years now , and another that was back in the socialism (Basically offsprings of the Comunism party) (One party is like Clinton and there wont be any change, the other is like Trump)

Our president can:

1: Represent Bulgaria
2: Set dates for all sorts of ellections
3: He can place a law under veto aka decline that law, but if the law is again accepted by a majourity, he can't really do anything
4: The president choses who will be in the government.

Basically the president is just a figure and can't do that much. He cant do anything about the emigrants.

There are bunch of organisations that do nothing and prefer to do nothing anyway and can't be forced by law to do anything at all.

It seems you have three main parties so I take it its the guy with most votes who wins,you also have a Prime Minister is your system similar to Russia's?

Yup. The people with the most votes , win.

Yes, we have a Prime Minister, who has more privileges than the president.

I don't know but i think our system is pretty similar to Russia. After all we were a comunist country till 1994.

We have Liberals, Democrats, Nacionalistic party (ATAKA or Atack in english(name speaks for itself)), Socialistic party, and Cantralism Party.

Now i am not very much into our politics but there are like 3 majour parties. yeah.

If I were Bulgarian I would probably vote for the EU-skeptic party (if there is one?), then maybe your president will have more ability to change laws and direction of your country?
Good luck!
