Petition to impeach President Radev started

Rumen Radev

In the aftermath of President Rumen Radev inciting the Bulgarian people to rebel, outraged citizens have started a petition against him. Thousands have already signed it, supporting the impeachment of the head of state, who essentially called for a civil war.

Here is the text accompanying the petition:


Ever since HE became president, HE has managed to create unprecedented chaos in relations between public institutions, and show complete disregard for parliament, the Constitution of the Republic of Bulgaria and the principle of separation of powers. HE urges people to rebel. He calls for foreign policy that would steer the country away from the EU and its major NATO partners and towards undemocratic regimes, which runs contrary to national interests.

HE is working against his own country, siding with the main opposition party, the Bulgarian Socialist Party (formerly a communist party).

These provocations by Radev cannot and should not be left without repercussions. We cannot have a pro-Kremlin instigator at the helm of the country, who divides the nation with his hybrid-war tactics instead of uniting it.

He cannot be commander in chief. It is a matter of national security.

With his positions, Radev has clearly shown on what side of the modern world’s line of demarcation he stands and that is not Bulgaria’s side.

You are either with Bulgaria or with its current president!

There is no middle ground!

One of the first challenges is that the EPPO team is not complete, we are missing six European delegated prosecutors as well as support staff,” Kovesi said.
