Lyutvi Mestan, the ousted former leader of Bulgaria's Movement for Rights and Freedoms (MRF) party, said Tuesday he was founding a new party to be called the Democrats for Responsibility, Freedom and Tolerance (abbreviated DOST in Bulgarian).

Mestan vowed that his new political project will adhere to "liberal and Euro-Atlantic" values.

He explained that he was creating the new party, not as a response to the attacks on him and his colleagues, but because "Bulgaria needs a liberal political entity."

"We want to give an alternative to the real brave and decent people to vote for a real liberal party," Mestan said.

According to Mestan, several MRF lawmakers are due to quit the party to become part of his project.
