What will be the consequences of another political scandal and the announcement of the recording by the Penal Code of the PP DB by MP Radostin Vasilev Radostin Vassilevgraduated "Law" at Sofia University "St. Kliment Ohridski". Clement? Is there any hope for an end to the deteriorating political situation? Were the boundaries of principle, activity and values crossed in politics? I'm talking to political scientist Hristo Panchugov. He is an assistant professor in the Department of Political Science at NBU. Previously, he was Deputy Secretary General of the UDF The Union of Democratic Forces (UDF) is a Bulgarian right-wing political party, successor of and is an active participant in attempts to unite the right before the Republic of Bulgaria.

It is very disappointing for people that a person like Radostin Vasilev Radostin Vasilevgraduated "Law" at Sofia University "St. Kliment Ohridski". Clement was recognized as her own by those who entered politics with claims to a new morality. He was twice given a chance, despite his previous betrayal and signals of his contradictory social behavior. It is disappointing that such people as Radostin Vasilev Radostin Vasilevgraduated "Law" at Sofia University "St. Kliment Ohridski". Clement continues to be legitimized.

The biggest tragedy of Bulgarian politics is that our politicians do the same things, but expect different results.

This spin in such a vicious circle for me is completely incomprehensible.
There is hope, but how long it will take to implement it, it is very difficult for me to predict.
The situation over the past two years has led to the collapse of some structures that have existed for a long time in our society. The bad thing is that at the moment there is no structure that can show what the change looks like and the new type of policy-making. The collapse itself is no longer bad news, given how long Bulgarian society has not seen a prospect. This process will be much longer than it could be. Obviously, there is a lack of political leadership to find the formula with which the healing of our society will begin. Like everything else, everything will go with a lot of pain and grief.
There is a chance to form a regular government, but the formula that has been found is again an expression of despair, not a working one.

Compromise in the course of negotiations is the worst solution, as no one is satisfied with it.

What we observe is even worse than a compromise because it shows an uncertainty between the two political formations. The idea of a rotating presidency and the fact that a new presidency goes through the resignation of the old one and voting on a new composition are a huge potential for blackmail and manipulation not only in the first 9 but also in the next 9 months. This is also a huge instability for the parties.
Even if a government is formed, it will face a huge challenge not only in terms of the policies it has to implement, but will also have to constantly convince Bulgarian citizens and its supporters of the need to continue to exist.
This requires a very active management process and strong political leadership.
I think there will be a withdrawal of voters after everything shown by our politicians so far on the field. Much of people's mistrust of politics comes from the suspicion that all the public reforms discussed will be discredited. If these doubts are not dispelled and a mechanism is not found to show that reforms will be brought to a successful outcome. If not, there will be a complete disaster of politicians and political reforms.

The political class is looking for direction.

Bulgarian society needs someone who realizes the price to be paid. Let's remember one of the most famous political speeches of all time, given by Winston Churchill! The speech was delivered in 1940 and the famous phrase in it was "I have nothing to offer but blood, hard work, tears and sweat." We need someone who has a clear political plan.
