On the occasion of the 135th anniversary since the Unification of the Principality of Bulgaria with Eastern Rumelia, President Rumen Radev stressed, speaking to reporters, that “the historical lesson to be learnt from Unification Day is that a change for the better is possible when we are united in upholding freedom, justice and equality before the law.”

In an address on social media Prime Minister Boyko Borissov states that Unification is a remarkable achievement of Bulgarian society. “I believe in the wisdom of the Bulgarian people! I believe that we, the citizens of Bulgaria will once again be able to come together around one national cause and embark on the path that is right for the country,” Boyko Borissov writes.
