The lack of professionalism is a huge problem in politics in Bulgaria. What is important, though, is that the protests are an attempt at restoring the moral values or a functioning system at least, actor Samuel Fintsi says in an interview for dnevnik.bg. Fintsi, who lives and works in Germany and is now on a short visit back to Bulgaria, is a regular at the anti-government rallies that have been running for 40 days.
The actor is impressed with the scale and constancy of the protests. "I can see that the energy is not subsiding," says he and points out that people should keep on voicing their demands until the ruling parties finally hear them.
"It is natural for politicians to not call things with their real names," Fintsi points out. However, that is always done on the basis of some considerations. In Bulgaria, he says, there is no basis for that. Besides, politicians are often very poor speakers and it is very hard to believe such people.
"People should have respect for what they do and think what is right", the actor says. "The protests should bring some critical minimum of self-respect and I am happy that they have finally produced a community in Bulgaria," Fintsi comments. "At least that is an idea for a community for three hours every evening."
