During the local pre-election campaign in 2007, the Bulgarian School of Politics organized five public debates with representatives of local civil society and candidates for mayors. The initiative was supported by the Trust for Civil Society in Central and Eastern Europe and implemented along with the Chitalishte Development Foundation, the Foundation for Local Government Reform and the Balkan Assist. The local debates were shot by the Bulgarian National Television and broadcasted for disseminating the main purpose of the project – stimulation of citizen’s active involvement in local elections and informed voting.
