Seventy-one per cent of the Bulgarians think that the Government of Prime Minister Boyko Borissov will serve out its full term of office.
This is evident from an opinion poll of the National Centre for Public Opinion Studies conducted among 100 interviewees in the period from November 3 to 10. However, 11 per cent think that it is possible to have early general elections. These are mostly people, aged over 50, inhabitants of small population centres, poor people and followers of the Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP) that hold this opinion.
A total of 42 per cent approve of the Government's performance, 4.5 per cent up compared to September.
