Parliamentary Sitting Fails Due to Lack of Quorum

12.7.2019
July 12 (BTA) - Friday's parliamentary sitting failed due to lack of quorum. On the agenda were first-reading amendments to the Election Code aimed to abolish machine voting in local and parliamentary elections, as well as Question Time in Parliament. After two unsuccessful attempts to gather enough registrations for the sitting, National Assembly Chair Tsveta Karayancheva commented that the MPs of the Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP) and the Movement for Rights and Freedoms (MRF) were in the plenary chamber but did not register. The third attempt yielded 120 registrations, out of the 121 necessary for a quorum. Due to the lack of quorum, Karayancheva set an extraordinary parliamentary sitting for July 23 to hold a debate on the draft amendments to the Election Code. "It is insulting that this disgrace happens today, when we mark 28 years since the adoption of the Constitution by the 7th Grand National Assembly," Karayancheva told journalists. Approached for comment, BSP leader Kornelia Ninova said that her party upholds its position against the abolition of machine voting by using all possible forms of behaviour in Parliament. Taking a question, she denied having an agreement with the MRF not to register for Friday's parliamentary sitting. Asked if a compromise on machine voting is possible, Ninova said the incumbent rule without accepting arguments of the opposition and civil society. In her words, the powerholders have decided to torpedo fair elections in any way possible. GERB Floor Leader Daniela Daritkova commented that the consolidated opposition in the face of the BSP and the MRF ruined Friday's parliamentary sitting. She said firmly that next week there will be quorum and the draft revisions to the Election Code will be debated. Valeri Simeonov, leader of the NFSB party within the United Patriots parliamentary group, expressed confidence that the abolition of machine voting will pass in Parliament. According to him, both the BSP and the MRF have behind-the-scene agreements. RY/DS // Source: Sofia, http://www.bta.bg/en/c/DF/id/2044152
