SOFIA, January 27 (Itar-Tass) – About 60 percent of Bulgarians voted in favor building a new nuclear power plant in the country in a referendum held here on Sunday.

According to exit polls conducted by the company Alfa Research, the turnout was 20.3 percent, which means that the issue will be considered by the national parliament.

According to Bulgaria’s laws, as many as 6.949 million eligible voters may take part in the referendum. Bulgaria’s current population is 7.36 million. The referendum will be considered valid if its turnout is at least the same as in the last parliamentary elections in 2009. It means that at least 4.3 million residents (about 60.2 percent of Bulgaria’s entire population) must cast their votes. However, in case of positive voting, when more than 50 percent cast “yes” votes, the referendum results will be submitted for consideration of the parliament, even if the quorum is not reached and the turnout is at least 20 percent of the overall number of voters.
