Volen Siderov Wants to Prove Nationalistic Parties to the EU
Sofia, Bulgaria -
The leader of ATAKA Volen Siderov wants to prove to the world that nationalistic parties are a viable partner to the EU. At least that’s what he said in a recent interview with Bgnes.
Volen pointed out that Bulgaria has never had such a strong presence of patriotic parties within its political system. “The world changed since 2007 and we can clearly see now that the neoliberal doctrine is being pushed back.” Volen also commented on the predominance of conservative ideas within our country and the increase in business in recent times.
And while the level of his contribution to it is questionable, he is right on both fronts. The salaries of Bulgarians are increasing and a recent study showed that the politics of the average Bulgarian tend to be more on the conservative side. Of course, the main difference between European conservatives and American ones is the stance on government – traditionalist on the Old Continent usually don’t mind a bigger state.
