The EverGiven effect and the ‘controlled vote’ in Bulgaria 


The EverGiven effect and the "controlled vote" in Bulgaria

This week on EURACTIV’s Yellow Room, we are talking about the EverGiven cargo ship blocking Egypt’s Suez Canal for nearly one week, the impact this had on transport and the economy before it was freed on Monday.

To dive into the background story, we’re joined by EURACTIV’s transport editor Sean Goulding Carroll.

We are also talking about the very important parliamentary elections in Bulgaria on 4 April, where citizens will head to the polls amid a surge of COVID-19 virus cases and after months of anti-government protests.

To break down all the components of the Bulgarian elections we spoke with Krassen Nikolov the editor-in-chief of EURACTIV Bulgaria.
