Bulgaria’s Greens: From Street Protests to Government

From July 2020 until the end of then-Prime Minister Boyko Borissov’s third term on 16 April 2021, Bulgaria was engulfed in daily demonstrations against government corruption and impunity. Following Borissov’s resignation, two inconclusive elections were held before a four-party coalition achieved a majority in November 2021. As a result, Greens are now in government in a breakthrough for the region. In January 2022, Pavel Antonov spoke to Deputy Prime Minister for Climate Policy and Minister of Environment and Water Borislav Sandov, one of the co-founders of the Green Movement party, about the political legacy of the protests, Green politics and ideas in Bulgarian society, and the priorities for government.
