Despite the resignation of the government on 21 February, demonstration against the establishment, the widespread corruption and the all-present nepotism in Bulgaria go on. For the third Sunday in a row tens of thousands of demonstrators marched through Central Sofia, bringing the traffic in that part of the city to a complete standstill.

A few days ago President Rosen Plevneliev announced the date for early elections as 12 May.
