Bulgarian Communist Party filed application to register for snap elections twice: CEC

Bulgarian Communist Party filed application to register for snap elections twice: CEC

21 August 2014 | 15:53 | FOCUS News Agency
Sofia. “Application for the registration of the Bulgarian Communist Party was filed at the Central Electoral Commission (CEC) twice,” said Alexandar Andreev, spokesperson of CEC, speaking at a briefing, FOCUS News Agency reporter said.
Andreev added that 22 parties and 7 coalitions have filed documents at CEC to register for the early parliamentary elections that will be held on October 5.
“The first time the application for the Bulgarian Communist Party was filed by Zonka Spasova, in her capacity of chairperson and representative of the party. Later on yesterday there was another application filed by Krum Zahariev. His application was not accompanied by the needed documents for party’s registration. He did not present a subscription list with 2,500 voters’ signatories either.
Since the commission makes the registration according to documents under the second application of the Bulgarian Communist Party, the one filed by Krum Zahariev, CEC made a decision not to respect the application.
As far as the application of Zonka Spasova is concerned, the check ascertained that there were not enough signatories to the subscription list, and we issued a recommendation for the party to present the needed additional list with signatories of voters supporting the registration,” the expert explained.
Andreev added that the additional subscription list was filed yesterday and it was being checked at the moment.
