Nearly 6,400 Turkish voters are registered in Bulgaria with the right to vote.

People from 10 country’s regional districts who have a permanent address in Bulgaria can vote at the Turkish Consulate General in the city of Plovdiv.

The voting of Turkish voters in Bulgaria continued for four days in Plovdiv for the president and composition of the 28th National Assembly in Turkey on May 14. The election process continued until May 7, and on Saturday and Sunday, an additional ballot box was placed in the Consulate General of the Republic of Turkey in Plovdiv.

During the election days, the polls were open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., Mr. Ahmed Pehlivan, one of the members of the election committee at the consulate, told The European News, wishing that the results would benefit the development of Turkey. According to Turkey’s election law, voters from other countries vote before Turkey’s election day. After the end of the voting, the ballots are taken to Turkey by diplomatic couriers. The polls will be opened at 17:00 on May 14, after the end of voting across Turkey.

“We are observing a growing interest in the electoral process in Bulgaria, and we are happy about that. Every vote with us has a high turnout. People believe that through their voice, the issues and topics that concern them will be able to find a reflection in the work of the government. They know it and believe in it, and that’s why they go to the polls with pleasure at every election”, said the ambassador of the Republic of Turkey in Bulgaria, H.E. Aileen Sekizkök Sekizkök in an interview with Sevda Dukyanci from the Turkish edition of Radio Bulgaria.
