SPOT THE DIFFERENCES?

A poster advertising GERB's leader Boyko Borisov, who was prime minister twice in the past 10 years, appeared for a few days on billboards along Bulgaria's highways and on posters posted outside GERB offices in some towns. Borisov, whose candidate, Tsetska Tsacheva lost bitterly to Ret Gen Rumen Radev in the presidential election last year thus prompting her boss to resign and invoke a snap election, appears stern as ever, wearing a general's uniform and posing in front of the Bulgarian national flag. Before taking up politics Borisov was in the protection business, then became this country's top policeman.

HEY LISTEN, MR PRICK!

If polls arithmetic is anything to go by, the grouping of small political parties calling themselves the Reformist Bloc and identifying themselves as pro-Western rightwing democrats did poorly at the November presidential election. With just 5.87 percent of the vote (or 253,726 actual votes) their candidate Traycho Traykov lagged behind the extreme nationalist Krasimir Karakachanov (14.97 percent), the politically unknown Veselin Mareshki (11.17 percent), and even the universally reviled former Prime Minister Plamen Oresharski (6.63 percent).
