Bulgaria’s Nessebar Reports 8000 New Voters ahead of Local Elections in Autumn

Bulgaria’s Black Sea resort of Nessebar has grown by 8000 new voters ahead of the upcoming local elections in the autumn, according to a signal of 8 political parties to the municipality, to the Chief Prosecutor, and two ministers. The tip-off was submitted by the Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria (GERB), the Democrats for Strong Bulgaria (DSB), the Union of Democratic Forces, the Bulgarian Agrarian National Union, the National Front for the Salvation of Bulgaria (NFSB), the Alternative for Bulgarian Revival (ABV), Movement 21, and the Union of Free Democrats, according to reports of Nova TV. The parties fear that the newcomers will skew the results of the local elections. At the previous round of local elections, the population of Nessebar grew by over 1200 in 3 months, while at the elections in 2007 there were some 1300 new people. The number of newcomers accounts for three seats in the local parliament in a municipality of 22 000 people. Zlatko Dimitrov from GERB pointed out that the official website of the Directorate General of Civil Registration and Administrative Service (GRAO) indicated that over 8000 people had current address registration in Nessebar. The director of the GRAO unit in the Nessebar Municipality, Gergana Todorova, rejected these claims, stressing that the residents of the municipality had increased by 1134, around half of them children, as of January 1, 2015. She noted that the increase was a traditional occurrence and not a precedent. The eight political parties complained about suspicious registrations in Obzor, Sveti Vlas and Nessebar. An inspection is underway at the Nessebar Municipality by the Interior Ministry and the Regional Prosecutor’s Office in Nessebar.
