Bulgaria smoking ban to stay as parliament rejects amendments to Health Act
Text size Aa Aa

Bulgaria’s ban on smoking in public places is to stay.

The parliament voted on Thursday to reject two bills that would have eased the ban.

MPs debated for three hours but there was a decisive rejection of the first reading of the Health Act amendments.

Opinion polls had found that most Bulgarians, including smokers, supported the ban.
