18/04/2024 | 19:28:24 Yes. Thank you very much, Mister President. I never heard such a lot of nonsense as in this debate. To Ms Sena Nur ÇELİK KANAT, I must tell you that the report of Mr Piero FASSINO found the majority in this Parliament, and if you are a democrat you should accept a democratic decision by the Council of Europe. That shows your thinking. Probably you think like Hamas, that killed their Fatah brothers in Gaza and established a terrorist regime. Gaza was not an open-air prison. The Israelis... 26/04/2022 | 11:18:54 Dear President, and thank you, Mr Titus CORLĂŢEAN, for your very good report.

These were the second elections in Bulgaria that took place, because in April Bulgaria was not able to form a government. The elections were held in a competitive and fundamental freedoms were generally respected. The campaign environment was dominated by mutual accusations of corruption between the former ruling party and the provisional government, as well as by efforts by law enforcement to curb vote buying. The elections were conducted under the legal... 21/06/2021 | 12:13:41 Sorry I forgot to press the right button. I want to report to you, Ms Vice-President, dear colleagues, about our mission in Bulgaria. We found that the elections were held in in a proper manner. They were well organised. Of course we had this pandemic also in Bulgaria which made a bit difficult to organise it as normal. A limited number of polling stations were opening late. We had some overcrowding in polling stations but this was mainly due to the pandemic situation and keeping of the...
