Bulgaria Socialist PM: GERB is Major Power, We are Nationwide04 November 2007
Bulgaria's Prime Minister and Socialist leader Sergey Stanishev refused to concede defeat in the local elections, saying his party remains the most consistently represented throughout the country power.
"GERB proved to be a major political power, especially in the district centres, but our representation is more consistent and nationwide," Stanishev said at the traditional after-election press conference, referring to the party of Sofia mayor Borissov that scored huge gains in the local vote.
The Bulgarian Socialist party won the elections in 43 municipalities, according to exit polls, cited by prime minister at the press conference. According to him candidates of the party and other left-wing formations claimed victory in more than 100 mayoral races across the country.
