"There's a new phenomenon on the Bulgarian market – massive numbers of businesses are being put up for sale. The amount has increased many times over and affects a wide variety of sectors – for example, construction, real estate, pharmacies and communications. Almost every sector is witnessing similar dynamics, which is a clear indication that a crisis is looming."   

Bozhidar Danev, chairman of the Bulgarian Chamber of Commerce

"It is out of the question  that the powerful explosions at the military munitions depot in Chelopechene in July didn't have an effect on seismic processes. At least that's how it makes sense to me."

Sofia Mayor Boyko Borisov, speaking on Bulgarian National Radio  about the earthquakes in Sofia

"The National Movement for Stability and Progress, or NDSV, is not burdened with ideological prejudices and would most likely be able to work constructively in any kind of coalition."     

NDSV Deputy Chairman  Milen Velchev

"Pardon my saying it, Mr Prime Minister, but you're a stud. You've withstood many provocations, and people who withstand low-down attacks deserve our admiration."

Father Petar from St George's Church  in Kardzhali

"All speculation on the subject  of the Movement for Rights  and Freedoms, or DPS, is very  dangerous and stupid. It is high time people realised that if there's a problem with the DPS, it's not the fact that they're Turks,  but the fact that they steal."

Lyuben Dilov Jr, MP from the  Union of Democratic Forces, or SDS

"It's just like in construction –  Bulgarians have no sense of proportion so they can't stop until they've already  gone overboard." 

Stoyan Zhelev, chairman of the Association of Car Producers in Bulgaria, on the import of second-hand cars
