Protesters and politics irreconcilable

For almost two months, tens of thousands of Bulgarians have been protesting against the government of Plamen Oresharski. Now four intellectuals have challenged the president to a live televised debate in the name of the protesters, an offer he rejected last Monday. According to the daily Trud, a true dialogue wouldn't have been possible in any case: "The problem is that there is no longer a common basis for discussion between the political powers and the protesters on the street. Those in power underestimate the protesters. And the latter in turn dismiss those in power offhand. At the moment the protesters are making three demands: immediate resignation of the government, a change to the election law and new elections in the autumn. Any attempt to put anything else on the agenda is drowned out with calls of 'mafia'. That's why for now dialogue and an agreement between the protesters and the government is no more than a pipe dream."
