Parties’ campaigns for the early parliamentary elections to begin on Sunday have concluded in Bulgaria. The 45 parties and coalitions to participate in the elections have finalized their propaganda.

The Movement for Rights and Freedoms (HOH), whose members are mostly Turks, organized a rally and concert the last day of the election campaign.

HOH organized a rally in the southeast of the country to remember the assimilation policies employed by the communist regime, which was toppled in 1989, against Muslims.

HOH leader Lutvi Mestan stated in his speech in Karamantzi that the elections tomorrow "would be a fateful day" for Bulgaria, and that they would emerge stronger and more successful from the election.

Mestan expressed that 29 years ago the people of Karamantzi were pioneers in the resistance against the communists, and that their pain would not be forgotten.

During the last day of the election campaign, the HOH introduced its candidates for regional deputies.

Lutvi Mestan said that he was immediately fined 2 thousand 500 euros for greeting the people of Kardzhali in Turkish and his Turkish speech.
