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.

Description of map.[edit]

Hi,

The description under the map is slightly confusing. It is confusing in that it does not clearly state that Bulgaria is in Europe.

The description does not say wheher the dark green is in the European Union or not.

Can I recommend a change from: – in the European Union (green)

To: – in the European Union (green & dark green)

Kind Regards, Patrick.
