Bulgarians elect new parliament amid pandemic


SOFIA, Bugaria (AP) — Bulgarians are heading to the polls to cast ballots for a new parliament after months of anti-government protests and amid a surge in coronavirus infections. The 12,000 polling stations opened at 7 a.m. Sunday for the 6.7 million eligible voters who are electing 240 lawmakers. The vote is widely seen as a referendum on Prime Minister Boyko Borissov. The 61-year-old macho-style political maverick has led his center-right GERB party with an iron grip for more than a decade and now hopes to win his fourth term in office.
