For us, Sofia is a goal, but not an end in itself – because we know that in Sofia, if there is no mayor of GERB, this unfortunate administration, which we have been witnessing for 3 years, can be repeated, he said
“We have always preferred to appear as politicians, not as numerologists. For us, the number does not matter, it is our members and sympathizers in all localities that we count on for a decisive victory in this election to put an end to this political instability , in which we lived for the last three years”. This was commented by People’s Representative Toma Bikov after the CEC decided that GERB was number 7 in the integral ballot. However, when asked what he associated the week with, he replied: “By God, it’s the divine number and we hope it’s for good. But if we relied on the numbers, we probably wouldn’t have won any elections.” He hopes to put an end to the political instability and stressed that if you rely only on the number, there is no way to win elections.
Bikov expressed hope that GERB will disprove all rumors about deals during the local vote.
“Our structures in Sofia are in full mobilization. For us, Sofia is a goal, but not an end in itself – because we know that in Sofia, if there is no mayor of GERB, this unfortunate administration, which we have been witnessing for 3 years, can be repeated. We will not allow Sofia to become a field of experiments,” he said. And he assured that GERB stands behind Anton Hekimyan. When asked why Boyko Borisov did not appear with their candidate for mayor of the capital, he answered: “The leader of the GERB party will appeared with all the candidates he could”.
“We have candidates in all municipalities in the country, in the villages. Most likely, he will not be able to appear with all of them, but with Anton Hekimyan, he will certainly appear, because this is the largest city. We strongly support Anton Hekimyan and we believe that he will win,” assured Bykov.
The deputy pointed out that GERB never justified themselves either to the voters or to the Ministry of the Interior if they did not win. We search within ourselves if we have made any mistakes, God grant that we have found the right path. I am sure we will win seriously,” he said.
