I entered politics on an absolutely meritocratic principle – without party parents, without anyone supporting me, without businessmen behind me. When I saw him, Slavi Trifonov asked me: “Why are you here, what are you fighting for?” I said: “I am here to fight against this system and the status quo.” But yesterday we voted together with this system and I am ashamed of that. I am obliged to go out and declare myself – I am not GERB, I am not DPS. Tonight, when I return home to my children, I will be able to look them in the eyes, said Simeonov, and his words caused a thunderous applause from the MPs from the government.
