Political declaration dedicated to September 9 causes tension in Parliament

A declaration of "Democratic Bulgaria", dedicated to the communist coup of September 9, 1944, caused tension in Bulgaria’s National Assembly.

“People were subject to persecution over those 45 years. They were deprived of opportunities to develop and their rights were restricted. That is why forgiveness goes hand in hand with repentance”, said MP Atanas Atanasov from Democratic Bulgaria.

"The historic date (September 9) is constantly used as a "chewing gum" by parties that cannot offer a plan for the future", said “BSP for Bulgaria” MP Alexander Simov.

“We must live with history or it will devour us”, warned Arman Babikyan from the coalition "Stand up Bg! We are coming!”

The coalition GERB-SDS called for "humility before the sacrifice made by our ancestors". /BGNES
