Kostadin Dimitrov has over 75% support as mayor of a region in Plovdiv
The leader of GERB Boyko Borisov presents the candidate mayor for the city of Plovdiv, the regional mayors and the lists for municipal councilors.

The last three years – nothing. The water cycle ended with our projects, the stadiums too. Those who appear now and give a request for management, they managed then as well,” Borisov also stated.
