"If the mayor has no time for the capital, he won't have time for Bulgaria… Boyko Borisov made over 9,000 media appearances while there are now over 9,000 children for whom there are no places in the kindergartens."

Sergey Stanishev, prime minister of Bulgaria

Ivan Krastev, political scientist

"By Borisov's hospital bed he, Kostov and I discussed this country's future."

Tsvetan Tsvetanov, leader of the Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria, or GERB, party
