Bulgaria's largest opposition party votes to quit parliament


SOFIA (Reuters) - Lawmakers from Bulgaria's opposition Socialist Party (BSP) are leaving parliament for an unspecified period, saying fair elections could not be guaranteed following recent Election Code amendments.

As the Socialists control 79 of the 240 seats in parliament, the move, approved by BSP's national council on Saturday, could lead to numbers in parliament more frequently falling short of those it needs to pass legislation.
