Anton Hekimyan has an advantage – it sounds quite patriotic. Let’s see him speak. I wouldn’t be surprised if this guy has a knack for being a politician. Parvan Simeonov commented this to Nova TV. Let’s not write it off. Borisov was supposedly going to give them the victory. He doesn’t like to lose. How can he give something that is not his anyway, said the sociologist.
“The second thing that Borisov is trying to do is to create the feeling of a supra-political candidacy and to open the fan of the second round. However, this is not at all easy. How will you collect an anti-vote. How will the PP-DB collect an anti-emblem vote, being in a coalition with them or how GERB will gather anti-communist votes. Terziev sounds like an abstract dreamer,” he analyzed.
“Vanya Grigorova is an authentic scandal-mongering leftist. She is in her place. The candidate of Vazrazhdane will also be in a role. We from Vazrazhdane do not expect expertise, only croaking. However, here we have analyses,” he said.
His fellow sociologist from “Trend” Dimitar Dimitar Ganev made a prediction based on the parliamentary elections in April. “There are two large formations – PP and GERB. Vazrajdane and BSP are much smaller. However, this does not mean that there cannot be changes within these 6-7 months,” Ganev said.
According to him, the candidates of the largest parties usually reach the runoff. “In the second round, however, both Hekimyan and Terziev will find it difficult to appeal to the votes of the other contenders from the first round.
“If BSP and Vazrazhdane come out to vote in the second round, they will vote for the one who is less antipathetic to them. The battle between Terziev and Hekimyan will be who will irritate them less,” Ganev said.
If so, it means that he is a very good politician, because the victory is not his at all. However, Hekimyan can win. Otherwise, the ideal mayor would be Georgi Georgiev, he is perfect, but he is not recognizable and that is the problem,” he said.
