Political party enters donkey as mayor candidate

A Bulgarian political party has entered a donkey to run for mayor in the country’s elections.

The Society for New Bulgaria chose the animal, called Marko, as a candidate for the position in the town of Varna because he “doesn’t steal” or “lie”.

Angel Dyankov, head of the campaign headquarters of the Society for New Bulgaria party, said: “Unlike the other mayor candidates and politicians, the Donkey has a strong character, doesn’t steal, doesn’t lie, and gets work done.”

He is set to stand for the role of mayor at the October 23 elections.
