Former prime minister Boyko Borisov’s centre-right GERB party is ahead in three polls, while the new centrist group is ahead in the second.
Exit polls in Bulgaria’s parliamentary election indicate a tight race between former prime minister Boyko Borisov’s centre-right GERB party and a new centrist, anti-corruption group.
Alpha Research’s exit polls showed GERB narrowly ahead in Sunday’s poll with 24.8 percent, while Gallup International saw the new faction, We Continue the Change, in first place with 25.7 percent.
Two other exit polls showed GERB leading with around 23.5-24.7 percent of the vote, the third taking place this year.
Even in Sunday’s presidential election, Rumen Radev, a bitter critic of Borisov, was seen garnering nearly 49 percent of the vote in the first round, as two exit polls showed.
