With pictures of past victories of the UDF (the Union of the Democratic Forces), the Blue coalition opened its election campaign for the parliamentary elections on the 5th of July on the "Lovers Bridge" in Sofia. The stake for these elections is great because the Blue coalition would not only have to send as many MPs as possible in the Parliament, but it also has to score more than the DPS (The party of the Turkish minority in Bulgaria) and the BSP (The socialists), as well as more than the other recently formed small right parties, so as to win the confidence of GERB (Citizens for the European Development of Bulgaria). Otherwise a government of the right forces cannot be formed. But no one is willing to predict what government Bulgaria will have in the Autumn. Either way the chances for second elections are constantly growing.
