Fifth Election Seeks to Break Bulgaria’s Political Paralysis

Bulgaria is set to hold a fifth election in two years this April as parties signal they’re looking to break a deadlock that’s hindered the country’s path to the single European currency and has delayed billions of euros in recovery funding.

President Rumen Radev said he will dissolve parliament Feb. 3 and schedule a vote for April 2. His interim governments have led the Balkan state amid a series of inconclusive elections — the last one in October.
