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]

Religion[edit]

Kinda fed up with people interpreting numbers as they see fit or just plain manipulating them. The article states "More than three-quarters of Bulgarians subscribe to Eastern Orthodoxy.[292]", citing the NSI Census data from 2011.

Now what the NSI data really says is 21.8% haven't answered the question about religion, and 76.0% of those who answered identify themselves as orthodox christians, meaning its not "three-quarters" but 59.4%.

I guess the same people push that number to 6.5 million in the Bulgarian Orthodox Church article.

Semi-protected edit request on 5 February 2016[edit]

Bulgaria was under Ottoman slavery. The Bulgarians who made rebellions agaisnt Ottomans- Chrosto Botev and Vasil Levski say that they are under ""Ottoman slavery. Most of the Muslims invaders flew from BUlgaria in 1878 AD, ut some of the continue to live in Bulgaria. Later, in 1990 AD, some Muslim turks made a party. They begin to lie that " there is no Ottoman slavery". But All Bulgarian know that the life for bulgarians in Otoman empire was Slavery. So at all places the word ""Ottoman rule" must be replaced with "Ottoman slavery" !!! The first Bulgarian empire helped many times Byzantium, against the Muslims invaders from Saudi Arabia. For example- 718 AD... Bulgaria was under Byzantine rule from 1018 AD to 1185 AD. It do not change very serious the life of Bulgarians, because bothe - Byzantines and Bulgarians were Christianians. So from 1018 to 1185 AD, Bulgaria is under Byzantine Rule, and from 1396 to 1878 AD Bulgaria is under Ottoman Slavery !!! So at all places the word ""Ottoman rule" must be replaced with "Ottoman slavery"

You will not find any reliable sources to back it up. Pseudo-history and extreme nationalism are hardly acceptable in an encyclopaedia. --Laveol T 19:14, 5 February 2016 (UTC)

Infobox proposal[edit]

Folks, I'd like to propose the following change to the Infobox Formation

  • First Bulgarian Empire 680 (No change)
  • Christianizing of Bulgaria 864 (New)
  • Second Bulgarian Empire 1185 (No change)
  • Third Bulgarian State 3 March 1878 (No change)
  • Current constitution 13 July 1991

I'm removing 1908 and adding the 864, as it seems more meaningful. Also, streamlining the text a bit. Please, comment. Veliko3 (talk) 14:06, 12 February 2016 (UTC)
