Electoral system[edit]

Could anyone confirm the electoral system currently used in Bulgaria. There seems to be confusion over whether the single-member constituencies still exist, or whether all seats are elected by proportional representation. The IPU claims the former, whilst the IFES claims both... Cheers, Number 57 08:22, 5 July 2013 (UTC)

All seats are elected by proportional representation. They tested out a mixed electoral system in the 2009 elections when 31 of the seats were elected from single-member constituencies. The next elections (2013) did not feature any form of majority vote. However, there is a motion to once again amend the Electoral Code in the near future. --Laveol T 11:19, 5 July 2013 (UTC)

The article: Elections in Bulgaria has now been updated. I noticed how badly outdated it was! There is still some more work to do here. Kndimov (talk) 14:10, 10 March 2014 (UTC)

WW1 Reparations[edit]

Hi, I am working on the World War I reparations article. I am currently expanding the information on the Bulgarian reparation demands and payments. Thus far, I have established the following:

1 - Treaty of Neuilly established that Bulgaria had to pay 2.250 billion Gold francs in reparations.(Treaty of Neuilly, Article 121)
2 - In 1923, the Bulgarian reparation sum was "revised downwards" to 550 million gold francs "plus a lump sum payment of 25 million francs for occupation costs".(Marks, Myths of Reparations, pp. 234-5)
3 - Between the treaty signing and April 1922, 173 million gold francs were paid (1)
4 - Between 1925 and 1929, Bulgaria paid a further 41 million gold francs, before reparations were abandoned at the Lausanne conference of 1932.(2)

Can anyone provide additional information (including sources)? Such as:

1 - Do the above figures represent total Bulgarian reparation payment, and if not what was it?
2 - Did an event, such as the Dawes Plan for example, occur to revise down the Bulgarian reparation payments?

Thanks for any help provided.EnigmaMcmxc (talk) 03:56, 22 December 2013 (UTC)
