Pravets Computers[edit]

This article doesn't include any information about the Pravets computers, which were very important to the Bulgarian technological industry. It mentions the "Silicon Valley of the Eastern Bloc" but the Science and Technology section needs. I looked around and there isn't even a page for the Vitosha computers--the earliest computers in the 1960's. Please update the article because these are really important technological advancements for Bulgaria! *Prod prod* Thanks, DasPig - talk 03:34, 27 December 2014 (UTC)

Outdated Prime Minister information![edit]

I mentioned in the List of Bulgarian Prime Ministers article talk that the current PM is not Boiko Borisov, it is (or was) Plamen Oresharski, who himself resigned August 6 of this year (2014), and was succeeded by Georgi Bliznashki, the interim PM. As a result the Government infobox on this page contains outdated information--could we change that as well? Thanks(and on another page's talk I think I stated that the new Prime Minister of Bulgaria was Marin Raykov. That's not true and sorry for the false information.), DasPig - talk 14:10, 27 December 2014 (UTC)

Currency wasn't invented in chalcolithic Bulgaria![edit]

In the history section of this article, it gives an example of how advanced metallurgy was in Bulgaria during its copper age. It claims, "Some of these first gold smelters produced the coins, weapons and jewellery of the Varna Necropolis treasure, the oldest in the world with an approximate age of over 6,000 years". Wow, talk about original research! Coinage wasn't invented in Bulgaria, at least not for another 3000 years!! I realise the word "coin" can mean anything flat and circular that vaguely resembles money but the meaning of coin is commonly understood as being a reference to a metal currency, of some kind. I would suggest "coins", in that sentence I quoted, could be replaced with "crowns" as that would sound just as impressive but not seem, at least at first glance, to be so much of an exaggeration. Alternatively perhaps, a more precise description should be used, as in "discs resembling coins", to prevent a confusion with a circulating prehistoric currency. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.163.138.150 (talk) 19:56, 12 January 2015 (UTC)

Movement for Rights and Freedoms[edit]

The Movement for Rights and Freedoms, (Bulgarian: Движение за права и свободи (ДПС), Dvizhenie za prava i svobodi (DPS); Turkish: Hak ve Özgürlükler Hareketi (HÖH)), is a centrist political party in Bulgaria. It is a member of the Liberal International and the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe (ALDE) Party, and is a liberal party, whose main goal are the interests of the Muslims and its principal electorate are ethnic minority groups, including Turks and Bulgarian Turks in Turkey.

As parties of ethnic and religious nature are forbidden by the Constitution of Bulgaria, the party has described itself as a party for all Bulgarians, whose aim at the same time is the welfare of the minorities. The party's predecessor during the communist rule in the 1980s was the underground organization Turkish National Freedom Movement. From 2001 to 2009, the party was part of the government, first in a coalition with the National Movement Simeon II (NDSV) party and then with the Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP).

The party was chaired by Ahmed Dogan from its official establishment on 4 January 1990 until 19 January 2013. On 19 January 2013, Lütfi Mestan was elected as the second chairman of the Movement for Rights and Freedoms.[1]
