The presentation was attended by the MEPs Iliana Iotova, Stanimir Ilchev and Metin Kazak, as well as Liuben Dilov-Son, and foreign guests, and former NDSV MP, Iuliana Doncheva. The formation comprises other famous people in Bulgaria, such as the member of the International PR foundation (IPPA) Poli Karastoyanova, the sports journalist Krum Savov and the former volleyball player Liubomir Ganev.
Binev said that the political priorities of GORD and stated that the movement ‘would strive for power’.
Furthermore, the leader of GORD pointed out that many things in politics were possible, except for a coalition with the current governing party GERB. He also blamed Prime Minister boyko Borisov for the intensifying of the economic crisis in the country and stated that the current administration was a ‘new wave dictatorship’ which did not lead Bulgaria to any improvement.
One of GORD’s main aims is to oppose the current governing party GERB by offering ‘common sense’ as response to ‘strong hand’, as well as make reasonable politics.
