Date and funding set for upcoming elections

The Council of Ministers adopted a decision on the preparation and holding of the parliamentary elections on 2 October 2022, the Press Office of the Council of Ministers said. The caretaker government also approved the budget plan for the costs of preparing and holding the elections. The approved funds amount to just over €35 million.

The government is prepared to provide additional funds in case of a decision by the Central Electoral Commission to introduce video surveillance at polling stations, as well as for securing logistics and technical support for specialised devices for electronic machine voting and other materials and accompanying activities to secure the machine voting. /BGNES
