As Expected, Bulgarian President Calls Third Parliamentary Vote For November 14.

Bulgarian President Rumen Radev has officially set the country's third parliamentary elections of 2021 for November 14, the same day voters will cast ballots in a presidential election.

The presidential press office said in a statement on September 15 that Radev will dissolve parliament and name an interim government on September 16.

The move was expected as Radev had indicated he favored saving time and money by holding the votes at the same time.

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.
