Yorgos Christidis spoke to Thanasis Georgakopoulos about the political and social developments in Bulgaria and Bosnia and Herzegovina.

“We are in a situation where there is no clear mandate to form a government,” he said of Bulgaria, led by Boyo Borissov’s GERB party and several smaller parties without enough seats to form a government and fight corruption. Issues such as the energy crisis and high prices prevail.

Yorgos Christidis also referred to the elections in Bosnia and Herzegovina and the nationalist tendencies in the country and especially in the Serbian Republic. Unless there is a change in the Dayton Agreement, such policies cannot be disarmed, he mentions. Lastly, he views positively the decision to grant Bosnia and Herzegovina candidate status to the EU accession.
