Bulgaria Schedules Third Parliamentary Elections Of 2021.

SOFIA -- Bulgarian President Rumen Radev has announced that he is scheduling the country's third parliamentary election of 2021 to coincide with the next presidential election on November 14.

"In this way we will save both the treasury's money and people's time in particular Bulgarian President Rumen Radev has announced that he is scheduling the country's third parliamentary election of 2021 to coincide with the next presidential election on November 14.," Radev said during a visit to the Bulgarian town of Pleven on September 11.

"It is obvious that the two campaigns for the National Assembly and for president and vice president will run simultaneously and merge."

Bulgaria held parliamentary elections on April 4 and July 11. But no party in the divided legislature managed to put together a majority coalition needed to form a cabinet after either vote.

Bulgaria's National Assembly on September 2 scheduled the country's next presidential election to take place on November 14. Radev has said that he will run for a second term. So far, he is the only official candidate in the presidential race.

Two parties -- the Bulgarian Socialist Party and There Is Such a People -- have stated that they will support Radev's candidacy for a second term, rather than fielding their own candidates for the post.
