Ex Bulgarian Prime Minister: I am actually Macedonian

Sergej Stanishev, the leader of the Bulgarian Socialist party and former Prime Minister, during his appearance as a guest of popular entertaining show “This Saturday” stated that he is Macedonian.


Stanishev, whose partner Monika Josifova is Macedonian, was asked by the host of the TV show if there was jealousy in their relationship?

He responded “That’s a given because she is Macedonian, but so am I”.

Bulgarian media called Stanishev’s admission “sensational”.

For years, even during his days as Prime Minister, both Macedonian and Bulgarian media speculated Stanishev family roots are Macedonian. He never commented on the speculation, but now that he isn’t in power, it seems it was the right moment.
