Bulgaria’s last King and former Prime Minister Simeon Saxe-Coburg-Gotha made clear he does not hold a special “interest” or affinity for the Presidency of the country.

Admitting his special attitude to being head of state in principle, has added, in a Friday interview with private bTV station, that for most of his life he has been taught to only take decisions based on careful judgment and not to make moves calculating his own benefit.

“After all, I began my life as head of state, so it is not my last ambition,” he pointed out.

Saxe-Coburg-Gotha made his comments against the background of uncertainty about the candidates in the forthcoming presidential elections due in Bulgaria this autumn
