Bulgaria News Alert

Protests planned in Sophia near National Assembly July 25-27; heightened security measures and localized traffic disruptions expected

TIMEFRAME expected from 7/25/2018, 12:00 AM until 7/27/2018, 11:59 PM (Europe/Sofia). COUNTRY/REGION Sofia


Demonstrations are planned near the National Assembly in Sophia on Wednesday, July 25, through Friday, July 27 from 08:30-21:00 (local time) to protest amendments to a recently adopted privatization law. Heightened security measures and localized traffic disruptions are expected near demonstration sites.


The amendments to the privatization law, which parliament approved on July 17, would, among other things, exempt companies from paying indemnities beyond five years. President Rumen Radev has stated that the changes would be harmful to the public interests and vetoed the amendments on Tuesday, July 24, sending them back to parliament for further review.


Individuals in Sophia are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all demonstrations as a precaution, and anticipate transportation disruptions in the vicinity of protests. Adhere to all directives issued by the local authorities.
