If general elections were held today in Bulgaria, the mandate-holder Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria (CEDB) would have got 22.6% of the votes, the Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP) – 14.8%, the Movement for Rights and Freedoms (MRF) – 5.1%, while the Reformist Bloc – 3.4%, Focus wrote.
These are the results of a recent public opinion survey themed “Political and economic index of Gallup International – monthly national representative research”, carried out by Gallup International among 1,011 adults from all over the country between March 26 and April 2, 2015.
23% of the people inquired say that they would vote for the CEDB at the elections against nearly 15% for the BSP. If the elections were held today, the parties that would have entered the parliament are: CEDB, BSP, MRF, the Reformist Bloc and the Patriotic Front. Ataka and ABV, on the other hand, have the real chance of entering the parliament, too. Bulgarian government enjoys 30% approval rating by the start of April against 58% mistrust. The National Assembly, on the other hand, reports 18% trust and 71% mistrust.
Some of the supporters of the mandate-holder Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria (CEDB) seem to be rather hesitant over the past two months. This is a normal tendency in politics to report some exhaustion in the support to the ruling during the mandate. There are no general changes in the public feelings in the past month. The slight decrease of the negative expectations for the Bulgarian economy and the issues connected to it seems to have ceased.
