During his visit to Elhovo, the caretaker Minister of Interior and Deputy Prime Minister for Public Order and Security Ivan Demerdzhiev pointed out that in just one month the migratory pressure on Bulgaria has increased by 24 percent, BTA reports. According to Demerdzhiev, this is a six-fold increase compared to last year. However, he noted that there were no grounds for concern - over 800 troops were deployed at the border and there was no need to send more forces.
Next week, the Interior Ministry will hold a meeting with the Central Election Commission to discuss the organisation of the upcoming elections on 2 October. We intend to identify those who buy votes," Demerdzhiev said. /BGNES
