Collaboration with Committee for State Security

In 2006 Parvanov admitted that before 1989 there was a file on him at the former Communist Security Service (Darzhavna Sigurnost, or DS) under the nickname Gotse (to the revolutionary Gotse Delchev). The file, which, like most files of the Security Service, hasn't been released to the public, does not prove beyond reasonable doubt that he has actually been an agent at the DS, and those who have had access to it disagree as to what it contains. According to Parvanov's own statement, the file only shows that he had been consulted as a historian in conjunction with the writing of a memoir book about events from one hundred years ago and especially the Macedonian Question.[1] That was confirmed by two members of parliamentary commissions that had examined the files of the Security Service earlier — Bogomil Bonev and Veselin Angelov.[1] Two other members, Metodi Andreev and Evgeni Dimitrov, accused the first two of lying and asserted that the historical research had only been a prelude, followed by Parvanov's consent to work as an agent and write a report about his institute.[2] The Committee for State Security (Bulgarian: , Komitet za darzhavna sigurnost; abbreviated КДС, CSS), popularly known as State Security (Държавна сигурност, Darzhavna sigurnost; abbreivtated ДС) was the name of the Bulgarian secret service during the Communist rule of Bulgaria and the Cold War (until 1989). ...

Please wikify (format) this article or section as suggested in the Guide to layout and the Manual of Style. ...


A year later, on 19 July 2007, a special Commission for Opening the Files determined officially that the President Georgi Parvanov was listed as a secret police collaborator of the former Communist Security Service from 1989 till 1993.[3] He was recruited a month before Bulgaria's communist regime collapsed. It also became obvious that a large part of his secret file was missing.


2006 Elections

In the first round of the elections, incumbent Parvanov came first with 64.047%[4] ahead of ultranationalist leader Volen Siderov with 21.486%,[4] whom he had to face in a runoff, as Bulgarian law requires a turnout of at least 50% for a president to be elected in the first round. The voter turnout in the first round was 42.51%.[5] Volen Siderov Volen Siderov (Bulgarian: ) (born 19 April 1956) is a controversial Bulgarian politician and chairman of the far right nationalist party Attack. ... Voters lining up outside a Baghdad polling station during the 2005 Iraqi election. ...


The second round saw a decisive Parvanov victory of around 75.9% as opposed to Siderov's 24.1%, meaning that Parvanov became the first person to be democratically reelected as President of Bulgaria.[6] The turnout was 41.11%.[7]
