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).
