Decrease of gambling tax approved by Bulgarian Parliament

A proposed ammendment to the Bulgarian Gambling Act was approved at first reading by the Bulgarian Parliament on its Wednesday session, with 110 votes in favour and 79 against it and only 2 abstinent votes. This means the gambling tax will be reduced threefold.

The ammendment proposal was motioned by members of the Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP) along with members of the Movement for Rights and Freedoms (DPS) and were headed by the chair of the parliamentary budget committee Yordan Tsonev.

BSP had demanded the voting be postponed claiming that the draft law had not yet been discussed in Parliament. Prominent left-wing party members and members of the Coalition for Bulgaria, managed to convince everyone that the ammendment should be supported.
