As expected, the current President Georgi Parvanov won a second term. He had 75.9% of votes at the second round, his rival Volen Siderov collected only 24.1%.
Yesterday, my husband commented while watching the news, "Now, when Parvanov was re-elected, everything goes on as expected. A Russian company is appointed to build the second nuclear plant and Bogomil Raynov was decorated with a medal."
I've mentioned in my previous post the tendency of Mr. Parvanov to decorate nasty people. Bogomil Raynov is a writer who used to be very well positioned during the Commnist era, in fact he was close friend of Lyudmila Zhivkova, the daughter of dictator Todor Zhivkov. Older generations remember that when Bogomil was young, he publicly renounced his father, writer Nikolay Raynov, in order to boost his career.
