Paradox: Bulgarians have a lot of faith in the European Parliament, but are reluctant to vote

“I am worried from the data of the European commission research, according to which only 27% of the young people in Bulgaria have stated that they will vote for Bulgarian representatives in the European Parliament.”

Those were the words of the Commissioner for Consumer Affairs Meglena Kuneva during her public lecture in the Varna Free University today.

According to her, during the upcoming elections, Bulgaria has to grow out of the paradox of having a stronger faith in the European institutions than in their faith in the local government. The European Parliament has a very high level of trust among Bulgarian citizens, but most of them – especially the younger ones – are reluctant to vote, says Kuneva.
