Bulgaria's Plovdiv rejects ban on burqa in public places
The municipal council in Bulgaria's second-largest city Plovdiv voted on May 17 to reject a proposal to ban the wearing of the burqa in public places.
As in other cities where the proposal has been made – and in the case of the municipalities of Pazardzhik and Stara Zagora, already accepted – the move was initiated by nationalist party VMRO.
At the Plovdiv municipal council meeting, there were 15 votes in favour, 12 against and 21 abstentions, defeating the proposal.
