Bulgaria will hold a national election on April 4, the president said on Thursday, completing the full four-year term of the centre-right coalition government after it survived major anti-corruption protests last summer.
President Rumen Radev, who supported the anti-government protests, called the election a week later than the earliest possible date, citing the need for more preparations for a fair vote among challenges arising from the coronavirus pandemic.
