A call to defend democracy!

A call to defend democracy!

The Bulgarian Community for Liberal Democracy (BOLD) is among the supporters of the open letter for protection of democracy, initiated by the Stockholm-based International IDEA and the National Endowment for Democracy, based in Washington.

The main message of the call is that the coronavirus pandemic poses serious threats to democracy. Many governments around the world enjoy extraordinary powers that restrict human rights and strengthen state oversight, often ignoring legal restrictions, inspections, balances, and deadlines for restoring constitutional order.
