Ethnic Turks in Bulgaria are calling for early parliamentary elections in the country.

Lutvi Mestan, the leader of the mainly Turkish Truth and Freedom Movement (HOH) Party, called for elections to take place at the end of this year.

His call came after meeting with coalition leaders Sergey Stanishev of the Bulgaria Socialist Party and Prime Minister Plamen Oresharski.

During the meeting, the HOH leader pointed out his party's success in sending four candidates to the European Parliament after the May 25 elections and used this as a reason to call for moving the polls forward.

Warning that Oresharski remaining as Prime Minister could lead to instability, Mestan said the government should resign by September and pass on the responsibility of running the country to an interim technocrat government until early elections on November 27 or December 4.
