Will a new government end Bulgaria’s corruption woes?
Voters are going to the polls in Bulgaria for the second time in three months. Elections in the spring were inconclusive. No party won enough support to form a government. This time, two parties have been running neck-and-neck in opinion polls – one populist and the other, pro-Europe. They promise drastically different solutions in a nation rocked by alarming revelations of state corruption. Transparency International describes Bulgaria as the most corrupt country in the EU.
